Technical notes:
This is one of four faces of a folded sheet of studies (see also Tate D00050, D40210 and D40211; Turner Bequest III Ea, b and c), each of which has a separate Tate accession number, following Finberg’s sequence ‘(a)’ to ‘(d)’ under his overall heading ‘Sunningwell Church’. Opened out, the sheet measures 157 x 398 mm; in its folded form it may be likened to a pamphlet, the present blank face being its fourth and last ‘page’.
