Catalogue entry

As Hill points out, this is a view from a point further downstream than the sketch on folio 8 verso of the sketchbook (D05501). The same trees and rustic bridge as shown here on the left also appear on folio 9 verso (D05503). There is some relationship to the landscape setting of The Thames at Weybridge (Tate T03872; displayed at Petworth House)1 but engraved as Isis for the Liber Studiorum.
