Turner Bequest CCCLXXIV 27 b
The work is mounted with the album page turned vertically, on the same sheet as D36505 (Turner Bequest CCCLXXIV 27 a). Finberg states1 that this is a copy after Giovanni Paolo Panini (1691–1765), without citing a source. It is also reminiscent of the classical fantasies of Charles-Louis Clérisseau (1721–1820). Thomas Girtin copied Clérisseau for John Henderson (1764–1843); an example from Henderson’s collection showing the Temple of Concord, Rome is in the British Museum, London (1878–12–28–35).2 See also folio 29 recto (D36507; Turner Bequest CCCLXXIV 28).
