Drawn with the sketchbook inverted. From left to right, these details are windows, the arms in the pediment of one of the Baroque wings fronting the High Street, and the statue of Queen Caroline in the cupola over the gate of the college. See also the recto and folio 49 (D07668, D07670) for more details of Queen’s.
See notes to folio 43 verso (D07659) for Oxford views in this sketchbook and their relationship to Turner’s picture View of the High-Street, Oxford painted for James Wyatt (Loyd Collection; on loan to the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford).1 For Queen’s and its possible appearance in a companion picture see notes to the recto (D07668).
