Catalogue entry

Drawn with the sketchbook inverted, and continued to the right on folio 125 verso (D06336), for which see catalogue note. Hill reproduces this double spread as if continued across folios 128–127 verso and the verso of the present leaf (D06341–D06340, D06338) to form a continuous panorama from the North Terrace. This configuration is impossible in reality and Turner must have drawn these sections separately.
