Catalogue entry

Drawn with the page turned horizontally, this subject, like that on folio 25 verso opposite (D01725; Turner Bequest XLII 50), is difficult to decipher. It may have been made high up on the ridge of the Malvern Hills; see folios 19 verso–20 recto (D01713–D01714; Turner Bequest XLII 38–39).
