Made in connection with Turner’s lectures as Professor of Perspective at the Royal Academy, this diagram of a crucified figure within a triangle appears related to a group of drawings illustrating the ways in which geometry enters into art (Tate D17137 and [verso] 40014, D17139; Tate CXCV 166, 168). See note to D17139 for their probable function as supplements to Lecture 1 and date after 1812.
Blank, save for an inscription by an unknown hand in pencil ‘161’ bottom left.
