Catalogue entry

Here Turner pictures a series of views of coastline looking inland from vantage points on the beach. Given the number of buildings depicted, the artist may well be at or near the port of Lowestoft, Suffolk, the neighbouring environs of which are recorded on the folio opposite (Tate D18246; Turner Bequest CCIX 46). For similar views see Tate D18239–D18244; Turner Bequest CCIX 42a–45).
