Catalogue entry

At the top of this page, Turner worked a cursory view of Paris from the Barrière de Passy, a customs office located on the western edge of the city. For the watercolour of this same prospect which Turner worked up with a view to engraved reproduction around this time, see Tate D24682 (Turner Bequest CCLIX 117). This led to an engraving in the 1835 volume of Turner’s Annual Tour: Wanderings by the Loire and Seine (1833–5; later reissued as Rivers of France); see Tate impression T04719.
