Catalogue entry

Inverted in relation to the sketchbook as foliated, the maritime view in chalks on the right hand side of this page is a continuation of folio 34 verso opposite (D27828; Turner Bequest CCLXXXII 34a).
Technical notes:
The black smudges at the centre of the page are counterproofs of the chalk marks on folio 34 verso opposite (D27828; Turner Bequest CCLXXXII 34a).
