Catalogue entry

This series of sketches shows coastline with buildings atop cliffs overlooking the beachfront. The location appears to be Lowestoft given the form of the lighthouse pictured at rear (see Tate D18225–D18227; Turner Bequest CCIX 35a–36a). Similar drawings are found on Tate D18239, D18241–D18245; Turner Bequest CCIX 4a, 43a–45a.
