Catalogue entry

The subject is drawn with the page turned horizontally. The top of the drawing of the East Yorkshire Minster here was continued on the verso of the preceding page, since rebound as folio 96 verso (D40566); the recto of that leaf, numbered out of its true sequence (D01002; Turner Bequest XXXIV 91) also shows the building. A further drawing of the interior of Beverley Minster on a loose sheet (Tate D01108; Turner Bequest XXXVI N) belongs here.
