Turner Bequest CCLIX 51
This is one of a large number of sketches on loose sheets of paper depicting coastal terrain and seagoing vessels in various combinations. For the grouping and dating of these works to the middle and later periods of Turner’s career, see the section introduction.
The paint surface is work across the sheet.
Pencil notes ‘[...]51’ and ‘D24616’. Vestiges of white wove paper around the edges, presumably from an earlier mount.
