Catalogue entry

There is a more elaborate drawing of this view, though from a viewpoint closer to the margin of the lake, in the contemporary Hereford Court sketchbook (Tate D01351; Turner Bequest XXXVIII 97), which is inscribed on the verso with the names of two potential patrons, ‘Honble Mr Lacelles’ and ‘Pope’; for both patrons see under D01351, and the Introductory note to Hereford Court.
Another view of Llyn Cwellyn from the south east is on folio 29 recto (D01384); see also folios 26 recto and 28 recto (D01381, D01383).

Blank; stamped in brown ink with Turner Bequest monogram.
