Catalogue entry

A slightly different view of this subject is Tate D00690 (Turner Bequest XXVIII E).
The drawing was made with the page turned horizontally.
Technical notes:
As Ian Warrell has noted, there is no early exhibition record for this sheet, but it is evident from the discolouration of the paper that it was exposed to light for a considerable period.
Verso:
Inscribed by John Ruskin in red ink ‘735’, and by another hand in pencil ‘57’; stamped in brown ink with Turner Bequest monogram.
