Joseph Mallord William Turner 1775–1851
Pen and ink on cream laid paper, 119 x 189 mm
Inscribed by Arthur Mayger Hind in pencil ‘LXXXVIII 17’ top left, inverted
Accepted by the nation as part of the Turner Bequest 1856
Drawn with the sketchbook inverted, this sketch was not listed or described by Finberg, presumably because the leaf was laid down and the recto (D05444
; Turner Bequest LXXXVIII 17) then on exhibition in the touring Third Loan Collection
Se note to the recto for comment on the original location of this leaf.
