Catalogue entry

For Turner’s Oxford views in this sketchbook, beginning with Magdalen Bridge, see the Introduction to this sketchbook. This sketch and a similar of the bridge on folio 29 verso (D04769) seem to mark the start of a walk round the city. A further view from the bridge is on folio 46 (D04790).
