Catalogue entry

The drawing was made with the page turned horizontally. A ‘Scottish Pencil’ of this view is Tate D03382 (Turner Bequest LVIII 3), identified by Finberg as Loch Long with Ben Arthur; he also considered the drawing on folios 6 verso–7 recto (D03288–D03289) to show that subject.1 The connection is tenuous, to say the least.
