Catalogue entry

Hill relates this to another leaf from this sketchbook, possibly of the same stretch of river (Tate
D05941; Turner Bequest XCV 37), and notes that marks on the paper suggest that they were originally adjacent with this one coming after the other which may itself have followed another possible view near Marlow (Tate D05910; Turner Bequest XCV 6).
