Turner’s viewpoint here is the Brocas meadows on the north side of the River Thames, looking south-east. Eric Shanes has mentioned this drawing1 in relation to the watercolour Windsor Castle of about 1828–9 (British Museum, London),2 engraved in 1831 for Turner’s Picturesque Views in England and Wales (Tate impressions: T05086, T06093), as discussed under the similar view on folio 2 recto (D20598); as in the present drawing, the low morning sun is seen above the castle in the completed design. See also folio 2 verso opposite (D20599).
