Catalogue entry

These previously unidentified sketches depict the North Quay at Yarmouth, Norfolk. The larger of the two views has been drawn with the sketchbook turned upside down. Both sketches include the medieval North-West Tower with its conical spire. The profile of the steeple of St Nicholas’ Church can also be seen in the principal view. See also Tate D18194–D18195; Turner Bequest CCIX 20–20a.
