Catalogue entry

This is a view of the cathedral from the north-west. The copperplate inscription on the verso (D40029) suggests that this was another subject designated for the ‘12 Views on the River Avon’; see the introductory note to the Bristol and Malmesbury sketchbook (Tate; Turner Bequest VI).
