Joseph Mallord William Turner The Coast near Teignmouth 1811

Joseph Mallord William Turner 1775–1851
Folio 91 Verso:
The Coast near Teignmouth 1811
Turner Bequest CXXIII 88a
Pencil on white wove writing paper, 75 x 117 mm
Accepted by the nation as part of the Turner Bequest 1856
This seems to be a view southwards along the Devon coast towards Teignmouth, with the Ness headland on the horizon at the centre. Three successive drawings on the recto (D08535; CXXIII 88), here and on folio 92 recto opposite (D08537; CXXIII 89) may show the same feature at different distances, and an inscription on the latter appears to refer to the area. For other views of Teignmouth see under folio 71 verso (D08499; CXXIII 68a).
