Kenilworth Castle is seen from the south-east, with Leicester’s Building on the left, the Great Tower on the far side of the inner court at the centre, and Leicester’s Gatehouse on the right above the Water Tower and Lunn’s Tower along the curtain wall.
Most of the sketches between folios 27 recto (D22024) and 37 verso (D22045) show Kenilworth. For the history of the castle and Turner’s subsequent watercolour, which Eric Shanes has described as a ‘synthesis’ of sketches between folios 28 verso (D22027) and 37 verso,1 see under folio 29 recto (D22028).
