Catalogue entry

Finberg did not volunteer an opinion as to the subject of this elusive scribble. It may show a detail of Gothic ornament, perhaps in connection with Turner’s drawings at Chichester on folios 27 verso–28 recto, 33 verso, 34 recto and verso and 35 recto (D00756–D00757, D00764, D00766–D00768; Turner Bequest XXX 26a–27, 32a, 33, 33a, 34).
Verso:
Blank; stamped in brown ink with Turner Bequest monogram.
