Catalogue entry

The drawings of coastal buildings on this page, some of which are inverted in relation to the sketchbook as foliated, were taken at Calais in Picardy, recognisable by its distinctively contrasting towers. For a more detailed drawing of these structures in the Turner Bequest see Tate D24857 (Turner Bequest CCLX 21).
