Catalogue entry

Perhaps a right-hand page of the sketchbook, as there are stitch holes on the left. This group of trees, drawn on the right, is a continuation of the view of Battle Abbey from this sketchbook (D10321; Turner Bequest CXXXVIII 2), for which see catalogue entry for comment.
There is stain of pale grey wash, or perhaps of damp, in the middle of the sheet.
