Joseph Mallord William Turner 1775–1851
View across the River Thames, with Wooded Hill Beyond: ?Cliveden Woods 1805
D05908
Turner Bequest XCV 4
Pencil on white wove paper, 259 x 367 mm
Inscribed by John Ruskin in red ink ‘4’ bottom right
Stamped in black ‘XCV 4’ bottom right
Accepted by the nation as part of the Turner Bequest 1856
This seems to be a right-hand page from the sketchbook. Hill places this slight sketch in his list of unidentified subjects from this sketchbook, noting that it lacks ‘landmarks, apart from hills’ and citing Finberg’s suggestion. Turner did draw Cliveden in the sketchbook (D05936; Turner Bequest XCV 32) but this location cannot be confirmed in the present instance.
Verso:
Blank.
