Turner Bequest CXIV 82a

Accepted by the nation as part of the Turner Bequest 1856
This is one of a series of sketches relating to Sandycombe Lodge, Turner’s self-designed Twickenham house (see the Introduction to the sketchbook), occupying most of the pages between folio 73 verso (D08057) and folio 86 verso (D08083), and apparently made working inwards from the back of the book.
Here the ‘salient characteristics’1 of the deep, narrow ‘Type A’ type and the broad, shallow ‘Type B’ type categorised by Patrick Youngblood (as discussed in the Introduction to the Sandycombe section) are combined in something approaching the plan of the house as built, albeit with two-storey wings rather than the single-storey ones originally built.
