Catalogue entry

This slight sketch may have been made when Turner was at Roslin, making drawings in a similarly rapid mode; for the main sequence of them see folios 61 verso–75 verso (D02901–D02924) at the other end of the book.
The recto of the leaf is blank and has not been assigned a Tate accession number.
