This sketch records Newby Hall from the south-south-west near to the River Ure, seen in the foreground. Turner’s standpoint is more distant and slightly to the right of that adopted for another sketch on the recto (D10928). The details of the house are indicated only skeletally, since both south and west fronts are drawn in separate sketches, on the recto, and secondly in the Yorkshire 3 sketchbook (Tate D11380–D11381; Turner Bequest CXLVI 6a–7). The Regency dining room, built in 1807 at the north end of the west front is, however, more clearly indicated here than in either of the other sketches. Despite the skeletal framework, Turner pays close attention to architectural details, making several sketches and notes.
For Newby Hall in this sketchbook se the recto (D10928).
