Joseph Mallord William Turner 1775–1851
Lined Mount for ‘Pembroke Castle’ c.1798
Ink and watercolour on white wove paper, 305 x 430 mm
Accepted by the nation as part of the Turner Bequest 1856
A.J. Finberg, A Complete Inventory of the Drawings of the Turner Bequest, London 1909, vol.I, p.107 under LIV A. c.1798.
In 1909 Finberg noted that Tate D01877
(Turner Bequest XLIV A), a watercolour of Pembroke Castle, was ‘apparently mounted by the artist, and margin of dark red and grey prepared by him. The present mount covers up Turner’s margin and from a quarter to half an inch of the drawing on different sides.’1
The sheet catalogued here, Turner’s mount, has since been detached.
