This is an oil sketch for a historic landscape with a dead or dying
figure. It was based on a drawing
in a sketchbook Turner used in Wales
in 1798. Turner has aimed for warm
and rich colouring, in order to evoke
a sombre mood and a grand effect. Unusually, he first prepared the canvas with a pink ground, in order to deepen the tone of his paint.
