Catalogue entry

See Introduction to the sketchbook for Turner’s visit to Tabley in 1808 and commission to paint a pair of pictures of the house and grounds for Sir John Leicester. This view was perhaps considered as an alternative basis for one of Turner’s pictures; see notes to folio 25 (D06846 Turner Bequest CIII 16) and the resulting oil sketch (D06848; Turner Bequest CIII 18).
