Catalogue entry

There are three distinct subjects here: at lower left a continuation of the view of the Thames and Richmond Bridge on folio 41 verso (D07120; Turner Bequest CV 87); at lower right boats and figures by a river, drawn with the sketchbook inverted; and above a slight outline of figures or trees, perhaps with a boat.
