Joseph Mallord William Turner A Bridge near Tunbridge 1810

Folio 87 Verso:
A Bridge near Tunbridge 1810
D07731
Turner Bequest CXI 87a
Pencil on white wove paper, 88 x 110 mm
Inscribed by Turner in pencil ‘Tunbridge’ and ‘cattle standing in | shade’ bottom right
 
Accepted by the nation as part of the Turner Bequest 1856
Finberg’s reading of Turner’s inscription as ‘Tunbridge’ seems right and may be confirmed by the nearby view of Somer Hill near Tonbridge on folios 84 verso–85 of the sketchbook (D07725–D07726).
