Catalogue entry

This sketch continues across folio 73 verso (D08057), under which the subject is discussed; the double-page study is the last of a series relating to Sandycombe Lodge, Turner’s self-designed Twickenham house (see the Introduction to the sketchbook), occupying most of the pages as far as folio 86 verso (D08083), but were apparently made working inwards from the back of the book. Ruskin’s inscription refers to the drawing on the recto of folio 73 (D08056).
