Edward Yardley proposed that this drawing was used as the basis for Turner’s two large watercolours of Cader Idris (currently untraced),1 but there seems little doubt that it actually shows Llyn Mymbyr and the valley of Nant-y-Gwrhyd, seen looking west from Capel Curig. Snowdon in the distance is hidden under cloud. The identification is confirmed by another drawing in this book, showing the same view from a little further east when the cloud had cleared; see folio 77 recto (D01301; Turner Bequest XXXVIII 48).
Blank; stamped in brown ink with Turner Bequest monogram.
