Catalogue entry

Drawn as Turner worked through the sketchbook from the back, and thus in reverse to the present numbering, this is the left half of a double-page spread continued to the right on folio 299 verso opposite (D11902), recording a sportsman and his dogs on open moorland scene presumably near Hall Beck Gill (see notes to folio 302 verso; D11908), the subject of contiguous sketches.
