Joseph Mallord William Turner 1775–1851
Folio 40 Recto:
?Greenwich from the Thames circa 1805–9

Accepted by the nation as part of the Turner Bequest 1856
Very slight and faint, this sketch is hard to read but seems to depict shipping and twin buildings beyond; it is perhaps Greenwich as in folio 41 (D06422; Turner Bequest XCIX 37).
