Folio 10 Verso:
The House and Garden at ‘The Limes’, Mortlake, Looking North-East down the River Thames 1825
D18724
Turner Bequest CCXIII 10a
Pencil on white wove paper, 113 x 187 mm
 
Accepted by the nation as part of the Turner Bequest 1856
This is a continuation of the trees shown in the full-page drawing on folio 11 recto opposite (D18725), under which the subject is discussed.
Technical notes:
The leaf has been removed from the sketchbook and reattached. The loose pencil marks towards the top and bottom of the gutter on the blank recto (D18723) relate to this process; such marks often occur on the backs of double-page spreads extracted for display in the nineteenth century, but there appears to be no record of such an event in this case, which would have involved the present page and D18725. The verso of the latter is inscribed with an ink number of the type also usually indicating early display.
