As recognised by Finberg and the Turner scholar C.F. Bell subsequent to Finberg’s 1909 Inventory,1 this sketch shows Pulborough. In the centre is Pulborough Bridge on the River Arun, seen from the south-west, and since been by-passed by a modern bridge running in parallel immediately on the near side; St Mary’s Church (now obscured by trees) appears on the hill beyond. The second crossing in the distance appears to be Wickford Bridge, since altered. There is a covered waggon in the foreground, almost merging with the foliage forms.
Undated MS notes by A.J. Finberg (died 1939) and C.F. Bell (died 1966) in their respective copies of Finberg 1909, Tate Britain Prints and Drawings Room, vol.II, p.649.
