Catalogue entry

For Hardraw Force see folio 29 verso (D11570; Turner Bequest CXLVIII 28a). This is a near view, but Turner also sketched the fall from a more distant viewpoint and in somewhat less detail across D11570 and folio 30 recto (D11548; Turner Bequest CXLVIII 15a). The present writer dates Turner’s sketches at Hardraw to Sunday 28 July 1816.
