Catalogue entry

This is a close study of Ripon Minster from the same north-easterly aspect as the preceding sketches on folios 35 and 35 verso and the recto of the present leaf (D10932, D10933–D10934). Turner records a detail of one of the nave windows, bottom right, and of the top of one of the transept finials, top right.
