Folio 61 Verso:
Cattle near a Bridge; ?Cassiobury Park in the Distance circa 1807
D06040
Turner Bequest XCVI 60a
Pencil on white laid paper, 92 x 163 mm
 
Accepted by the nation as part of the Turner Bequest 1856
Drawn with the sketchbook inverted, and continued a little on folio 62 (D06041), this is probably a view near Cassiobury Park; the house, from an indeterminate angle, may be visible in the distance. For Turner’s visit to Cassiobury and his drawings in this sketchbook and other works elsewhere, see Introduction to the sketchbook.
