Catalogue entry

The subject was identified as ‘Chatsworth’ by A.J. Finberg (died 1939) and the watercolour and Turner scholar C.F. Bell (died 1966) in undated manuscript notes in copies of Finberg’s 1909 Inventory.1 The view is from the north-west, with the Tudor Hunting Tower above to the left. At the top right is a slight secondary sketch, perhaps continuing the view along the Derwent Valley to the right. For other views of Chatsworth, see under D22231.
