Joseph Mallord William Turner A Wooded Landscape c.1807-14

Joseph Mallord William Turner 1775–1851
Folio 18 Verso:
A Wooded Landscape c.1807–14
Turner Bequest CXXII 18a
Pencil on white wove paper, 112 x 69 mm
Accepted by the nation as part of the Turner Bequest 1856
Drawn with the page turned vertically, this rapid sketch perhaps shows a road receding between trees. There are various identified and likely subjects along the River Thames in this sketchbook, as discussed in the Introduction, so this might be a Thames Valley scene.
