Catalogue entry

Inverted relative to the sketchbook’s foliation, this is a slight continuation of trees on the south side of Virginia Water; the main part of the view is on folio 90 recto opposite (D22145; Turner Bequest CCXXXVIII 88), where the Clockcase folly tower is seen on the skyline.
For other views around Virginia Water, see under folio 73 verso (D22113; Turner Bequest CCXXXVIII 71a).
