Finberg associated this sketch with Turner’s picture The Shipwreck (Tate, N00476).1 However, it is actually a sketch for The Wreck of a Transport Ship (Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian, Lisbon),2 a later work of about 1810. Another sketch for it is on folio 4 verso of the sketchbook (D05383; Turner Bequest LXXXVII 8). See Introduction to the sketchbook for the picture and its subject.
