Joseph Mallord William Turner Blank 1805

Joseph Mallord William Turner 1775–1851
Folio 3 Recto:
Turner Bequest XCIV 3
Stamped in black ‘XCIV 3’ bottom right
Accepted by the nation as part of the Turner Bequest 1856
Blank save for some splashes of oil or varnish, probably from Walton Bridges (the Loyd Collection);1 a study for the picture is adjacent on folio 4 (D05849) and Turner may have had the sketchbook to hand when it was on his easel.
