Catalogue entry

This is a full-page continuation of the view on folio 11 verso opposite (D21993), under which the subject is discussed. Of the views of the park beginning on folio 4 verso (D21981), Andrew Wilton and Eric Shanes have related the present double-page study to Turner’s subsequent watercolour (see under folio 12 verso; D21995).1 For other views of Blenheim, see under folio 2 verso (D21978).
