Turner Bequest CCCXLI 232v
Blind-stamped with Turner Bequest monogram below centre
Inscribed in red ink ‘232’ (sic) bottom right (faint)
Stamped in black ‘CCCXLI – 232 b’ (sic) bottom right
Finberg’s 1909 Turner Bequest Inventory is unclear at this point, listing only ‘232. A female figure. Red and white chalk’.2 The present work is stamped ‘CCCXLI – 232b’, albeit numbered CCCXLI 232v in Tate’s database system, while a second sheet (D33944) is stamped ‘CCCXLI – 232 a’.
