Joseph Mallord William Turner A Public Fountain with Several Figures, and a Horse Drinking 1801

Joseph Mallord William Turner 1775–1851
Folio 95 Verso:
A Public Fountain with Several Figures, and a Horse Drinking 1801
D02605
Turner Bequest LIII 95a
Pencil on white wove paper, 112 x 162 mm
 
Accepted by the nation as part of the Turner Bequest 1856
Drawn with the page turned horizontally, this may be a street scene in Newcastle upon Tyne, which Turner drew on folios 94 verso–95 recto (D02603–D02604). The fountain in this sketch is apparently the same as that shown on folio 96 verso (D02607).
