Catalogue entry

For the drawings in this sketchbook made around Walton Bridges and for the picture of a downstream view, Walton Bridges perhaps exhibited at Turner’s Gallery in 1806 and certainly bought by Sir John Leicester in 1807 (the Loyd Collection),1 see note to folio 4 (D05849). This sketch is another version of the same view.
