Joseph Mallord William Turner 1775–1851
Folio 51 Recto:
Cows, Seated and Standing 1807
Pencil on off-white wove paper, 118 x 187 mm
Accepted by the nation as part of the Turner Bequest 1856
A.J. Finberg, A Complete Inventory of the Drawings of the Turner Bequest, London 1909, vol.I, p.265, CI 91 [verso], as ‘On back: More cows’.
See note to folio 40 (D06719; Turner Bequest CI 92) for Finberg’s allocation of this leaf to the Boats, Ice sketchbook and its subsequent inclusion here. The corners have traces of gum from when this side was laid down on a mount so that the present verso (D06718; Turner Bequest CI 91) could be exhibited. The paper is badly discoloured from its exposure.
