Catalogue entry

Ian Warrell has confirmed Finberg’s tentative identification of this sketch as showing Haddon Hall, noting that it is shown from the north-west1 (the ‘North Front’); the River Wye meanders below on the right. This side of the house is now screened by trees. For other views, see under the recto (D22192).
