ii. (to the right, along the page gutter) Bonneville town, bridge and monument from downstream. Here Turner revisits a viewpoint he had drawn in 1802 (D04599; Turner Bequest LXXV 7) and the various studio paintings and watercolours derived from it (see catalogue notes to the 1802 drawing). A similar but more detailed drawing follows in the present sketchbook (D29097; Turner Bequest CCXCIII 33a).
