Turner Bequest XII C
The subject does not include the large east window of Tintern, and it seems that Turner intended his inscription for another sheet (Tate D00134; Turner Bequest XII E). This drawing appears to show the ruins of the north aisle seen from outside, with the arches of the crossing glimpsed beyond.
The brown discolouration of the sheet indicates that it has at some point been attached to a wooden backboard; presumably for display in the British Museum loan scheme.
Blank; stamped in brown ink with Turner Bequest monogram; inscribed in a later hand ‘13’.
