Joseph Mallord William Turner Richmond Castle and Mill 1816

Joseph Mallord William Turner 1775–1851
Folio 25 Recto:
Richmond Castle and Mill 1816
Turner Bequest CXLVIII 13
Pencil on white wove paper, 173 x 260 mm
Watermarked ‘J WH[ATMAN] |18[15]’
Stamped in black ‘CXLVIII 13’ bottom right
Accepted by the nation as part of the Turner Bequest 1856
These few lines form a continuation to the right of the view of Richmond Corn Mill and Castle on folio 24 verso (D11594; Turner Bequest CXLVIII 41, now bound opposite). The present writer dates this sketch of Richmond to Tuesday 30 July 1816.
Finberg mistakenly thought this page formed a double spread with D11542 (Turner Bequest CXLVIII 12a, now bound as folio 23 verso). The mistake had been noticed and the book rebound before the present writer’s 1984 book.
