The subject may be a fortification on the Bay of Baiae, north of Naples. Compare the castle shown in the companion album (Tate D36505; Turner Bequest CCCLXXIV 27 a). This is an accomplished drawing in which outline is minimal and the washes are free and expressive; it may be the work of Turner alone.
