This is an incomplete tracing from a perspective study of Robert Adam’s Pulteney Bridge, Bath (Tate D17081; Turner Bequest CXCV 111), made in connection with Turner’s lectures as Professor Perspective at the Royal Academy. It is on the back of another tracing made from the same study (Tate D17082; Turner Bequest CXCV 112). Turner based his drawing on an aquatint of ‘Pulteney Bridge from the Road’ by the younger Thomas Malton (1748–1804).
See notes to the recto (D17082) for further comments, the paper &c.
