Catalogue entry

This slight sketch is part of a larger view of a quay or harbour, which continues onto the folio opposite (Tate D32539; Turner Bequest CCCXXI 58). An illegible inscription has been crossed out below the sketch.

Inscribed in red ink by Ruskin ‘57’ and stamped in black ‘CCCXXI–57’, bottom right.
