Catalogue entry

As Finberg noted,1 this address first appears in the Royal Academy catalogue as Turner’s sending-in address in 1800. The house in Harley Street belonged to the Rev. Mr Hardcastle, and John Thomas Serres (1759–1825), marine draughtsman to the Academy and marine painter to the King, used rooms there as a studio.2
