Turner Bequest L S
The sheet has been folded vertically down the centre. It is one of a sequence of sixteen Yorkshire and other subjects included in the present subsection which were executed on uniform sheets of paper, as discussed and listed in the Introduction.
Blue paint smears; stamped in brown ink with Turner Bequest monogram.
Inscribed by Turner in pencil ‘Isis Bridge Oxford’; the handwriting in this inscription is very similar to that on a sheet probably in use in 1794 (Tate D40254; verso of D01109, Turner Bequest XXXVI O), on which Turner has listed ‘Mr Harris | Wolverhamp[t]on | Salisbury | Keswick | Cambridge | Mal[me]sbury | Peterborough | [?Abingdon’.
