Possibly from Turner's collection. Wilson's picture of the Falls is in the Wolverhampton Art Gallery, and the attribution of this reduced version has been debated between the painter himself, his studio, and Turner, if indeed it belonged to him. The subject would certainly have appealed to him, and it is possible the picture hung at Queen Anne Street.
