Made with the page turned horizontally, this is a record (without figures) of the painting The Arrival of Aeneas at Pallanteum by Claude Lorrain (1604/5–1682) now in the Fairhaven collection, Anglesey Abbey, Cambridgeshire (National Trust). This was one of the two ‘Altieri’ Claudes that Turner is known to have seen in May 1799; the encounter is recorded by the artist Joseph Farington in his diary for 8 May.1
