Folio 20 Verso:
Rosehill Park 1810
Turner Bequest CXI 20a
Pencil on white wove paper, 88 x 110 mm
Accepted by the nation as part of the Turner Bequest 1856
Continued on folios 21 and 22 of the sketchbook (D07624, D07625) this panoramic view is of John Fuller’s estate, Rosehill (now Brightling) Park, which Turner visited in 1810. From this first impression, or separately on the same occasion, Turner made a tighter, more finished study in his Views in Sussex sketchbook (Tate D10329; Turner Bequest CXXXVIII 10) which he used for the painting Rosehill Park (private collection)1 made for Fuller that year. Butlin and Joll observe the relationship of the present sketches to the painting but make no mention of D10329.
