Joseph Mallord William Turner Study of a Watermill 1798

Joseph Mallord William Turner 1775–1851
Folio 70 Verso:
Study of a Watermill 1798
Turner Bequest XXVI 73v
Pencil on white wove paper, 264 x 203 mm
The drawing, which Finberg titled simply ‘A cottage’, perhaps shows the same mill as that on folios 71 recto opposite and 72 recto (Tate D00632, D00633; Turner Bequest XXVI 74, 75).
The drawing is inverted relative to the sketchbook’s foliation.
