Catalogue entry

Inverted relative to the sketchbook’s foliation, this is a continuation of the drawing on folio 33 verso (D01965), corresponding to the part of the latter page which was evidently already missing.
Technical notes:
This leaf is of coarser paper than the remainder of the book, as are folios 36 (D01970), 42 and 50 (D01981, D01989; Turner Bequest XLV 41b, 49).
