Catalogue entry

Drawn with the sketchbook inverted. These two sketches continue the view of Greenwich Park on folio 47 verso (D06813) further to the left. Ruskin and then Finberg numbered both this and the preceding folio 47, giving the two sides of this sheet b and c numbers. It is in fact folio 48. See also Introduction to the sketchbook.
