200. [N05534] Cattle in a Stream under a Bridge c. 1805–7

THE TATE GALLERY, LONDON (5534)
Mahogany, 12 3/8 × 15 1/2 (31·5 × 40)

Coll. Turner Bequest 1856 (278, one of ‘37 Pictures various’, identified by chalk number on back; see No. 23); transferred to the Tate Gallery 1947.

Lit. Davies 1946, pp. 166, 191.

Very dirty and with considerable losses of paint, this unambitious picture probably dates from about the same time as No. 195 [N05541]; it lacks the freedom of the Thames sketches of c. 1807 and other landscapes of later in the decade.
