Catalogue entry

Identifying the subject, Hill notes its similarity to another in the sketchbook, on folio 113 verso (D06312), which is taken from further away and includes Guildford Castle and Trinity Church. 113 verso would have been made first if Turner was working backwards through the sketchbook.
