The page contains a sketch, drawn horizontally, of a ruined castle on a hill, with a clump of trees to the left of the castle, and a church tower faintly indicated in the distance at far right. Finberg noted it simply as a ‘Ruined castle’,1 but art historian Ian Warrell has subsequently indicated2 that this drawing (supplemented by folios 36 verso, 37 recto and 38 recto; D237769–D23770, D23772) was used as the preliminary sketch by Turner for his watercolour, The Castle at Lillebonne, Normandy, c.1832 (Tate D24807; Turner Bequest CCLIX 242). Lillebonne is also noted as the location elsewhere.3
There is a slight brownish stain at the left edge of the page, below this a slight tear in the paper, and a speck of brownish discolouration towards the centre of the page.
