East Cowes Castle is seen from the north-east; towards the left the square tower and its turret at the eastern corner of the main block party obscure the taller octagonal tower beyond, and towards the bottom right is the entrance porch. Among several drawings from along this side of the house, Tate D20829 (Turner Bequest CCXXVII a 26) shows the most comparable aspect, albeit in rather less detail and possibly at dusk.
This is among dozens of blue paper studies made in and around East Cowes Castle, presumably during the same visit. For more on the various aspects of the house (demolished in about 1950), and its lost grounds as depicted by Turner, see the Introduction to this subsection.
Blank; very slight ink offsetting is presumably from another drawing in this East Cowes Castle sequence.
