Joseph Mallord William Turner Hailes Castle, Near East Linton 1831

Joseph Mallord William Turner 1775–1851
Folio 35 Verso:

Turner Bequest CCLXVII 35a

Accepted by the nation as part of the Turner Bequest 1856
With the sketchbook turned to the right, this page contains two sketches of Hailes Castle in East Lothian near East Linton, identified by comparison with folio 24 verso (D25971; CCLXVII 24a). The top sketch is a view from the north-west, made from across the River Tyne, and at the bottom of the page is a rather rough sketch from the south-west. Turner would have been able to cross the river about 100 metres downstream by Hailes Mill (which is seen on folios 43 verso, 44 verso and 45; D25999, D26001, D26002; CCLXVII 43a, 44a, 45).
For more information about Turner’s visit to Hailes Castle in 1831 see folio 24 verso.
