Catalogue entry

Inverted relative to the sketchbook’s foliation, this view is probably of the north side of Virginia Water near the Chinese Fishing Temple shown on folio 90 verso opposite (D22146; Turner Bequest CCXXXVIII 88a) and in adjacent sketches. The small building in the distance, perhaps a boathouse, is not identified.
For other views around Virginia Water, see under folio 73 verso (D22113; Turner Bequest CCXXXVIII 71a).
