Joseph Mallord William Turner 1775–1851
Folio 6 Verso:
The Thames at Kew with Kew Bridge 1805

Turner Bequest XC 6a
Pencil on off-white wove paper, prepared with a grey wash, 150 x 258 mm

Although very slight and difficult to make out, this is perhaps a sketch of a view similar to those on folios 7, 8 verso, 9, 9 verso and 11 of the sketchbook (D05499, D05501, D05502, D05503, D05505), depicting Kew Palace and Bridge.
