As the notes inside the front cover (transcribed in the sketchbook’s introduction), and on the flyleaf (D41250), indicate, John Landseer commissioned a watercolour based on this drawing. It has not been traced, and Landseer never made an engraving of it. Steephill, or ‘Steeple’, amid the impressive scenery of the Undercliff at the extreme southern tip of the island, had provided a number of subjects for Thomas Rowlandson (1756–1827) when he visited the Island in 1784 and 1791.
Blank; stamped in brown ink with Turner Bequest monogram.
