Catalogue entry

This sketch records Baldersby Park (or as it was formerly known ‘Newby Park’; see folio 68 verso of this sketchbook, D10992) as seen from the park to the south-west. Turner has indicated the house only hastily here, but he recorded this aspect in detail from a closer viewpoint on folio 70 (D10995), opposite.
