Catalogue entry

Drawn with the sketchbook inverted.
For Bodiam Castle in this sketchbook, see notes to folio 7 verso (D10214; Turner Bequest CXXXVII 6a). As Finberg observed, this slight outline of trees by the moat extends the view on folio 12 verso (D10224; Turner Bequest CXXXVII 11a) to the right.
