Catalogue entry

Turner did not make a study of the house from this precise viewpoint, but the drawing is evidently based on information derived from the many details that he noted in the Oxford sketchbook (Tate D00021, D00028; Turner Bequest II 9, 14, etc.). See Tate D00049 (Turner Bequest III D).
Turner’s washline border has been cut down at the top and bottom.
Laid down on a modern sheet, stamped with Turner Bequest monogram.
