Finberg noted with pleasure this ‘lovely p[ain]t[in]g from nature. harmony in fawns. Water in foreg[roun]d – and stream issuing from hills’.1 The present author has argued that the drawing might have been worked up in the studio;2 but its fresh and spontaneous handling, including revisions of the subject that modify the pencil outlines on which the colour is based, perhaps suggest that it was done entirely on the spot. The identification of the subject is tentative. For Traeth Mawr, see also Tate D03647 (Turner Bequest LX a F).
