Joseph Mallord William Turner ?Masts c.1805-9

Joseph Mallord William Turner 1775–1851
Folio 22 Verso:
?Masts circa 1805–9
Pencil on off-white wove paper, 115 x 190 mm
Accepted by the nation as part of the Turner Bequest 1856
Not noticed or numbered by Finberg, this sketch is hardly legible and amounts to no more than two vertical lines and one horizontal, perhaps indicating masts and a spar.
