Turner Bequest CXIV 79a

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.
The present studies show the broad, shallow ‘Type B’ type categorised by Patrick Youngblood (as discussed in the Introduction to the Sandycombe section), with a classicising Palladian facade emphasising the central bay on the garden front; there is a related design on folio 83 verso (D08077).
