Kenilworth Castle is seen from the south-east, with Leicester’s Building on the left and the Great Tower on the north side of the inner court on the right. The sketch continues a little way onto folio 33 recto opposite (D22036), although it appears to have been drawn over subsequently with a nearby view.
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).
