Catalogue entry

Here Turner has drawn three coastal views in profile. Windmills, lighthouses and a church are visible. Finberg proposes the location depicted is somewhere on the Essex coast, though the features of the landscape are similar to those pictured on Tate D18176; Turner Bequest CCIX 11 which shows Great Yarmouth in Norfolk.1
