Catalogue entry

This is a continuation of the drawing on folio 23 verso opposite (D03322). As Finberg noted,1 a ‘Scottish Pencil’ drawing of this view is Tate D03421 (Turner Bequest LVIII 42). Finberg derived his identification of this subject, and those on folios 24 verso–25 recto and 25 verso–26 recto (D03324–D03327), as Tummel Bridge, from John Ruskin’s identification of the related ‘Scottish Pencil’ subjects. See this sketchbook’s Introduction.
