Catalogue entry

This drawing was not recorded by Finberg in his Turner Bequest Inventory. Very faint white chalk marks are apparent across the centre of this sheet although they are too light to identify a subject with certainty. Nonetheless, a pair of arches towards the bottom right-hand corner may suggest a bridge traversing a river.
Technical notes:
The verso of this sheet is catalogued under the entry for Tate D20265 (Turner Bequest CCXXII F). There are small smudges of blue and red paint towards the top left-hand corner.
