Catalogue entry

The subject is treated more atmospherically than the panorama on folio 28 recto (D00489). The works (perhaps a lime kiln?) with smoking chimneys in the foreground hollow, the hills and the glimpse of a distant lake suggest a landscape farther from London.
Verso:
Blank; stamped in brown ink with Turner Bequest monogram.
