Catalogue entry

This sheet is of different paper from the Smaller Fonthill sketchbook leaves in general, but is possibly a flyleaf from the same book. For another, more elaborate, view of Durham made like this one on Turner’s tour to Scotland in 1801, see Tate D02239 (Turner Bequest XLVIII 4); Durham views on Smaller Fonthill leaves now in other collections are listed in the sketchbook’s Introduction.
