The drawing was made with the page turned horizontally. As Finberg suggested,1 this is probably a sketch of Lot and his daughters fleeing from Sodom, for the Biblical painting The Destruction of Sodom, possibly exhibited at Turner’s gallery in 1805 (Tate N00474).2 Related studies are on folios 15 recto and verso, (possibly) folios 56 verso–57 recto, and 80 verso (D04930, D04931, D05012–D05013, D05060; Turner Bequest LXXXI 29, 30, 110–111, 158); see also under folio 3 recto (D04906; Turner Bequest LXXXI 5).
About half the area of the leaf has been torn away at the left, and made good with similar modern paper.
