Turner Bequest CLVII 6
Inscribed by John Ruskin in red ink ‘6’ bottom right (now faint)
Stamped in black ‘CLVII – 6’ bottom right
Of the works possibly derived from the 1817 visit, there is a much later watercolour of the cathedral from Prebends’ Bridge, of about 1836 (National Gallery of Scotland),8 which was engraved for Turner’s Picturesque Views in England and Wales. There are two rough sketches of the cathedral from this direction on folios 8 recto and 9 recto of the present sketchbook (D12327, D12328).
