Joseph Mallord William Turner ?Scene on the Thames 1805

Joseph Mallord William Turner 1775–1851
Folio 10 Verso:
?Scene on the Thames 1805
D05861
Turner Bequest XCIV 10a
Pencil on white wove paper, prepared with a grey wash, 143 x 228 mm
 
Accepted by the nation as part of the Turner Bequest 1856
Extremely slight and hard to interpret, this may, as Hill further suggests, be a continuation of the indications of river scenery on folio 11 (D05862) if read from the right or left. If so, it may depict the Thames at Richmond.
