Catalogue entry

This slight sketch can perhaps be compared with the group of trees on the right-hand side of the England and Wales watercolour of Powis Castle of about 1834 (Manchester Art Gallery),1 which was engraved in 1836 (Tate impressions: T05098, T06116).
There is a study of the castle on the recto (D01887; Turner Bequest XLIV K).
