Catalogue entry

This is a right-hand page from the sketchbook. Butlin and Joll compare the drawing to the oil sketch Willows beside a Stream (Tate N02706)1 but this is inconclusive. The location of these trees, presumably by the River Thames, is unknown. See also, from the same sketchbook, D05941
Turner Bequest XCV 37, perhaps drawn near Marlow.
