This is the right half of a double-page spread continued from D12017; Turner Bequest CLIII 13a, opposite, recording the East Lodges at Farnley Hall with associated details of the gates and main house. The main sketch on the present page served as the basis of a finished watercolour of the East Lodges, Farnley Hall (private collection)1, painted for Walter Fawkes about 1818 and numbered and named as ‘20 New Lodge’ in the list of Farnley and related subjects compiled by Turner in the present sketchbook (D12013; Turner Bequest CLIII 11a).
For comment on the attribution of the design of these gates to Turner himself see D12017.
