Joseph Mallord William Turner 1775–1851
Folio 60 Recto:
Group of Trees, with Buildings Beyond

Stamped in black ‘LXXI 52’ top right, running vertically

Numbered by Finberg as folio 52 of this sketchbook, this has since been rebound as folio 60. Turner turned the book sideways to draw an upright composition. Two very similar sketches are on folios 58 and 59 (D04249, D04250). All were doubtless drawn on the way to Paris.
