Catalogue entry

Rather than making a drawing of the whole of the interior, Turner has concentrated on isolated details which are located roughly in relation to one another and to the whole subject. He used these notes as the basis for a large watercolour study (Tate D02342; Turner Bequest L A).

The sheet has been folded three times horizontally and once vertically.
