Catalogue entry

The verso of D10329; Turner Bequest CXXXVIII 10, which carries a view of Rosehill (now Brightling) Park, the estate of John Fuller. Invisible to Finberg, as it was then laid down, the present subject consists of a small group of trees and two versions of the same church tower, identifiable as that of St Thomas à Becket, Brightling, adjacent to the park drawn on the recto.
