Catalogue entry

Not mentioned in Finberg’s 1909 Inventory,1 this is only part of a drawing; it has been rebound opposite folio 11 recto (D04005), a blank page thus lacking the remainder of the study, which does not seem to have survived.

See A.J. Finberg, A Complete Inventory of the Drawings of the Turner Bequest, London 1909, vol.I, p.171.
Technical notes:
There is offsetting corresponding with the drawing on folio 113 recto (D04130; Turner Bequest LXIX 114), which however does not appear to be the continuation of the drawing on this page
