Probably based on a drawing in the 1798 Cyfarthfa sketchbook (Tate D01665; Turner Bequest XLI 32), this elaboration may itself come from that book, or have been made on two pages of another; see the Technical notes that follow.
Technical notes:
The sheet comprises two parts, formerly split, not quite vertically, to the left of centre; the paper is scratched and stained, with holes worn at the centre.

Blank
