Joseph Mallord William Turner The Western End of the Vale of Earn 1801

Joseph Mallord William Turner 1775–1851
The Western End of the Vale of Earn 1801
D03409
Turner Bequest LVIII 30
Pencil and gouache on white wove paper prepared with a grey–buff wash, 345 x 482 mm
Stamped in black ‘LVIII – 30’ bottom right
Accepted by the nation as part of the Turner Bequest 1856
This and Tate D03423 (Turner Bequest LVIII 44) appear to show the same view from slightly different positions. The identification is owing to art historian Francina Irwin.1 Turner did not explore the Vale of Earn to any great extent; see the 1801 Scotch Lakes sketchbook (Tate D03195–D03196; Turner Bequest LVI 144a–145).
