Catalogue entry

This very rough diagram, not mentioned in Finberg’s 1909 Turner Bequest catalogue,1 reiterates part of the sketch map on the adjacent half of the sheet (D40270), to which it is connected by a thin, straight pencil line.
For an overview of the various works on this folded sheet, see under D00153. The other side of the present section comprises both D00153 (Turner Bequest XIII H a) and D40239 (XIII H b).
