Catalogue entry

The subject is continued on folio 177 recto opposite (D03256; Turner Bequest LVI 175). This is a similar view to that on folios 175 verso–176 recto (D03253–D03254; Turner Bequest LVI 173a–174), but taken from slightly closer to the subject and farther down the hill.
For other drawings of the tower, see under D03253.
