Catalogue entry

The composition continues across folio 19 recto opposite (D01154; Turner Bequest XXXVII 37). This is a second view of the interior of the church shown on folios 17 verso–18 recto (D01151–D01152; Turner Bequest XXXVII 34–35). The distinctive south aisle screen shown there reappears in, seen beyond the close screen separating the north aisle, which is the artist’s viewpoint, from the chancel.
