Catalogue entry

For the general setting, see under folio 4 verso (D03284). This is perhaps a variant of the composition on folio 7 verso opposite (D03290), but possibly, as Finberg suggests, a continuation of it,1 although such an interpretation is contradicted by the upright format of a related ‘Scottish Pencil’ drawing (Tate D03430; Turner Bequest LVIII 51).
