This page was detached by John Ruskin for exhibition in the Turner rooms of Malborough House, and was subsequently shown are various touring venues. It shows signs of having been exhibited, the whole page except for a 5 mm border having yellowed from exposure to light. Furthermore the Turner Bequest number (‘CC 2a’) has been inscribed at the bottom left of the page in pencil, suggesting that it was not attached to the sketchbook when it was first included in the inventory by Finberg.
