Catalogue entry

This appears to be a view of Denbigh from the west, drawn with the page turned horizontally. The ruined gatehouse was to be the subject of an exceptionally large watercolour study (Tate D04186; Turner Bequest LXX i), though no finished work appears to have materialised.
Verso:
Blank; stamped in brown ink with Turner Bequest monogram.
