Catalogue entry

James Paine’s Richmond Bridge is seen closely from downstream. The river scenery drawn separately above is also at Richmond, with the toll house at the north end of the bridge to left. Turner has sketched men fishing on the riverside path. For Richmond Bridge in this sketchbook see notes to folio 9 verso (D10427).
