Catalogue entry

This page is not described in Finberg’s Inventory.1 There is a watercolour landscape, inverted relative to the sketchbook’s foliation, on folio 40 verso (D08347); the latter page must have been pushed up slightly from the lower right corner of the composition as Turner worked, leaving the corresponding part of the present page exposed to stray colour along the edge.
