Catalogue entry

Finberg listed Turner’s slight half-page sketch here separately from the view on folio 1 recto opposite (D20733),1 but they appear to be continuous, and the subject is discussed under the other page.
This paste-down is inscribed by the Executors of the Turner Bequest, Charles Turner, John Prescott Knight and Charles Lock Eastlake in ink ‘No 323 [?last figure corrected from ‘5’] Contains 32 Leaves – | in Pencil Chalk & Colors. | C Turner –’, and in pencil ‘323 JPK’ and ‘C.L.E.’, towards the top left.
