Catalogue entry

Turner’s miscellany here is of passing interest. It includes a rather overloaded horse, carrying a figure and several large rolls of material besides towing a cart; a solitary figure supporting a bundle on her head; two figures seated (perhaps on a cart?) with brooms; and a very quick jotting of children playing.
