Catalogue entry

This is a continuation of the drawing on folio 146 verso opposite (D03195; Turner Bequest LVI 144a).
Finberg suggests a connection with the ‘Scottish Pencil’ drawing Tate D03423 (Turner Bequest LVIII 44),1 which art historian Francina Irwin has identified as showing the western end of the Vale of Earn; but there are few similarities between the two drawings.
