Catalogue entry

This page contains rough figure studies and written observations pertaining to the colour and type of their dress. Turner often recorded local and native costumes which he observed during his European travels, for example see the Scotch Figures sketchbook (Tate, Turner Bequest LIX) and the Swiss Figures sketchbook (Tate, Turner Bequest LXXVIII).
