Turner Bequest CCLXIII 43
Watermark ‘Ruse & Turners | 1828’
Blind-stamped with Turner Bequest monogram towards bottom centre
Stamped in black ‘CCLXIII – 43’ bottom right
The left-hand edge has been torn very roughly, leaving serrations. Eric Shanes notes that the paper is the ‘same’ as for the colour studies Tate D25167–D25171, D25184 and D25208 (Turner Bequest CCLXIII 45–49, 62, 86).1 The ‘Ruse & Turners’ watermark was current from 1805 to the 1840s, representing various permutations of partners (Richard Turner and Mr Letts by 1828) producing paper at Upper Tovil Mill, Maidstone, Kent.2
Blank (not examined out of frame).
