Made in connection with Turner’s lectures as Professor of Perspective at the Royal Academy, this diagram depicts an unidentified method for drawing a cube in perspective. Along with another also from an untraced source (Tate D16982; Turner Bequest CXCV 13), it would have supplemented already existing lecture material, most likely the history of techniques in Lecture 3.
Blank, save for an inscription by an unknown hand in pencil ‘43’ bottom left.
