Catalogue entry

Drawn with the sketchbook inverted. For the several sketches of St Catherine’s Hill in this sketchbook see mainly folio 77 verso (D06611; Turner Bequest C 72a). See also folios 54 and 55 (D06575, D06577; Turner Bequest C 49, 50) for probably adjacent views of St Catherine’s Lock and ferry.
A smaller sheet of blue writing paper is attached to this leaf, near the gutter; it has later inscriptions in red ink.
