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 sketch is an example of the deep, narrow ‘Type A’ type categorised by Patrick Youngblood (as discussed in the Introduction to the Sandycombe section), with arches supporting the garden front of the main storey,1 seen from the south. A similar design is shown from the north on folio 80 verso (D08071).
