Catalogue entry

This sketch is a detailed study of Baldersby Park from the south-west, supplying the detail for the quick sketch made from a more distant viewpoint on folio 69 verso (D10994), opposite. Turner has also noted architectural details above and slightly right of the house. For Baldersby Park, formerly known as ‘Newby Park’, see folio 68 verso of this sketchbook (D10992).
See Introduction and Technical notes to the sketchbook for the change of ink colour, apparently from blue to red, in the numbering of this page.
