Turner had made careful drawings of the impressive ruins of Tintern Abbey on his first visit to the Wye Valley in 1792 (Tate D00131–D00134; Turner Bequest XII B, C, D, E), and worked them up into a group of fine watercolours (Victoria and Albert Museum, London; Ashmolean Museum, Oxford; two at the British Museum, London; Museu Calouste Gulbenkian, Lisbon);1 see also Tate D00374 (Turner Bequest XXIII A). He evidently did not feel the need to add to the notes he already possessed of the architecture of the principal building, and so on this and the following page, folio 18 recto (D01263; Turner Bequest XXXVIII 13), contented himself with more general views, drawn with the page turned horizontally.
