Catalogue entry

Finberg separated this sheet from the Midland Tour series, believing it to be by Thomas Girtin (1775–1802). See also Tate D00336 and D36581 (Turner Bequest XXI I, CCCLXXVII 11).
The respective drawing styles of Girtin and Turner at this period have been discussed by the present author elsewhere.1
