This slight drawing, a continuation to the left from the main view on D08948 (CXXVI 3), shows the coast north-eastwards towards Foreland Point. It is not recorded in Finberg’s Turner Bequest Inventory.1 On the recto (D08949; CXXVI 4) is a view of Combe Martin, sketched previously as Turner proceeded from west to east along the Devon coast. For other views of Lynton and nearby Lynmouth, see the entry for D08948.
See A.J. Finberg, A Complete Inventory of the Drawings of the Turner Bequest, London 1909, vol.I, p.357, CXXVI.
There are five sets of stitch holes near the right-hand edge. There is a small piece missing at the bottom left corner, matching similar losses to adjacently numbered leaves (D08946–D08951, D40294; CXXVI 1–5a) and to D08964 (CXXVI 18). Some slight, parallel marks (possibly offsetting) at the bottom left are similar to those on the verso of D08946 (CXXVI 1).
