Sandycombe Lodge, Twickenham: An Unexecuted Elevation circa 1809–11
D08079
Turner Bequest CXIV 84a
Pencil on white wove paper, 87 x 117 mm
 
Accepted by the nation as part of the Turner Bequest 1856
This is one of a series of sketches relating to Sandycombe Lodge, Turner’s self-designed Twickenham house (see the Introduction to the sketchbook), occupying most of the pages between folio 73 verso (D08057) and folio 86 verso (D08083), and apparently made working inwards from the back of the book. Here an elevation of the garden (east) front as a single block is shown, chamfered at the corners as the eventually realised flanking wings would be.
