The view is to the north-west, with East Cowes Castle high on the right and Cowes across the River Medina below. For similar views, see under Tate D20804 (Turner Bequest CCXXVII a 1).
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.
