Catalogue entry

A pencil drawing in the Lloyd Bequest at the British Museum, London (1958–7–12–397), is another Kenilworth subject, presumably from this tour. Finberg listed the subject of this sheet as a part of the ruins of Croyland Abbey; the identification was corrected by C.F. Bell. Turner revisited Kenilworth in the course of his 1830 Midland tour; see the Kenilworth sketchbook (Tate D22026–D22045; Turner Bequest CCXXXVIII 28–37a).
Verso:
Blank; stamped in brown ink with Turner Bequest monogram.
