Catalogue entry

These indications of Turner’s transfer process occur on the back of Diagram 8/3 (Tate D17142; Turner Bequest CXCV 171). They suggest that Turner traced the outlines of an Athenian stoa or portico in order to make the guiding lines of Diagram 8/2 (Tate D17141; Turner Bequest CXCV 170) and a tracing left incomplete (Tate D17132).
