Finberg suggested the subject as ‘Falls of Ceunant Mawr’. The contemporary North Wales artist Jeremy Yates has pointed out that the sheet contains two or possibly three separate drawings.1 At the top is a broad view of mountains overlooking a valley; in the centre, a high rocky cliff with a waterfall; this may be Ceunant, above Llyn Gwynant, or possibly the Ogwen Falls at the head of Nant Ffrancon; and below, rocks and the roofs of houses. The last may have been drawn looking across the flat rocks that occur above Pont-y-Pair, the bridge at Betws-y-Coed that Turner recorded on folio 79 recto (D01302; Turner Bequest XXXVIII 49).
Blank; stamped in brown ink with Turner Bequest monogram.
