Turner’s viewpoint is the cliffs east of East Looe, looking south past the church and pier to Hannafore Point with St George’s or Looe Island in the distance. The coast in the opposite direction is shown on folio 114 verso (D08580; CXXIII 111a).
Eric Shanes has noted this sketch, along with that on folio 116 recto opposite (D08583; CXXIII 113), as a source for the watercolour East and West Looe, Cornwall of about 1815 (Manchester Art Gallery),1 engraved in 1818 for the Picturesque Views on the Southern Coast of England2 (see the concordance of the series in the 1811 tour introduction). However, the direct source of the composition, as recognised by Finberg and also noted by Shanes,3 is a drawing in the Ivy Bridge to Penzance sketchbook (Tate D08887; Turner Bequest CXXV 17a), under which other views of Looe in the same book are discussed.
