Catalogue entry

Drawn with the sketchbook inverted.
Finberg describes this drawing as being on ‘p.87’ (now folio 90), where the numbers probably added by John Ruskin, ‘303’ and ‘87’ and the Bequest stamp ‘CVI 87’ appear. In fact, the drawing is on the verso of the leaf.
For Harewood Bridge and Castle see note to folios 86 verso and 88 verso (D07243, D07246; Turner Bequest CVI 83a, 85a). The view here is the same as Turner had painted in a watercolour made for Edward Lascelles of Harewood in 1798 (Harewood House).1
