Rather than being a distinct ‘college’, Peckwater Court is the quadrangle added to Christ Church by James Wyatt, with a massive triumphal arch, Canterbury Gate, as its entrance. Turner was to make drawings of the gate in preparation for a watercolour of the building for a commission undertaken towards the end of the decade (Tate D02240, D08192; Turner Bequest XLVIII 5, CXIX E).
Blank; inscribed in a modern hand ‘2’; stamped in brown ink with Turner Bequest monogram.
