Catalogue entry

See Introduction to the sketchbook for the presence of a small run of sketches at Stratford-upon-Avon dating from 1833, including the present example, drawn inverted in relation to the main numbered sequence of subjects. The view records the town with Holy Trinity Church over the bridge, with a detail of the church tower and spire above right. It is continued to the right to include the Guild Chapel on the facing page (D29207; Turner Bequest CCXCIII 89a).
