Joseph Mallord William Turner Castle Ruins c.1810-16

Joseph Mallord William Turner 1775–1851
Folio 62 Verso:
Castle Ruins circa 1810–16
Turner Bequest CXXXVII 59a
Pencil on white wove paper, 181 x 228 mm
Blind-stamped with the Turner bequest monogram bottom right
Accepted by the nation as part of the Turner Bequest 1856
Drawn with the sketchbook inverted, this is one of several views a medieval ruins thought by Finberg to belong to Pevensey Castle; see also folios 63 verso and 64 verso (D10298, D10300; Turner Bequest CXXXVII 60a, 61a). However, this does not seem certain.
