Catalogue entry

Continued on folio 39 of the sketchbook (D10476; Turner Bequest CXL 35).There are two sketches, a slight outline of coastline across the top of these two leaves, and below a slightly more detailed sketch of chalk cliffs, probably near Shakespeare Cliff looking towards Folkestone. See also the verso and folios 37 (D10474, D10473; Turner Bequest CXL 34a, 33a) for more views near Shakespeare Cliff.
