Colour Studies for Charles Holford’s Grenoble Bridge c.1824

From the entry

These four colour studies or beginnings, derived from a monochrome drawing made in 1802 in the Grenoble sketchbook (Tate D04506; Turner Bequest LXXIV 14), were made as progress studies for a watercolour Grenoble Bridge (Baltimore Museum of Art, Maryland) acquired by Charles Holford. They are listed here in their likely order of execution rather than consecutively by their Turner Bequest numbers.
