Catalogue entry

These indications of Turner’s transfer process are on the back of Diagram 51 (Tate D17069; Turner Bequest CXCV 99). Turner traced the outlines of the drawing of the perspective construction of a Doric entablature to create the guiding lines for Diagram 50 (Tate D17067; Turner Bequest CXCV 97).
