Joseph Mallord William Turner ?Ullswater with Glenridding 1831

Joseph Mallord William Turner 1775–1851
Folio 22 Verso:
?Ullswater with Glenridding 1831
D25804
Turner Bequest CCLXVI 22a
Pencil on white wove paper, 114 x 187 mm
 
Accepted by the nation as part of the Turner Bequest 1856
This sketch, continued on folio 23 (D25805), may, as Finberg suggested, be of Ullswater.1 The view would therefore be from the foothills of Arnison Crag to the south of the lake, from which we look over Glenridding at the left with the shoulder of Birk Fell and Place Fell on the right.
