Accepted by the nation as part of the Turner Bequest 1856
Turner has produced this drawing with the page turned horizontally. The drawings are two separate delineations of the profiles of rolling hills punctuated at points by what appear to be spired forms, a church in the distance perhaps.
Technical notes:
The paper is lightly spotted with a black substance.
