Catalogue entry

Drawn with the sketchbook inverted, and continued a little on folio 62 (D06041), this is probably a view near Cassiobury Park; the house, from an indeterminate angle, may be visible in the distance. For Turner’s visit to Cassiobury and his drawings in this sketchbook and other works elsewhere, see Introduction to the sketchbook.
