As Andrew Wilton suggests, these figures may include Turner and his travelling companions, Newbey Lowson, the driver of their cabriolet and the Swiss servant they had hired in Paris who would have been returning with them. It is possible that the figures are in a boat on an expedition such as that on Lake Brienz documented in this sketchbook; see for example folios 17 verso and 23 verso (D04753, D04761).
