Joseph Mallord William Turner Unidentified Subject 1836

Joseph Mallord William Turner 1775–1851
Folio 42 Verso:
Unidentified Subject 1836
Turner Bequest CCXCIV 41a
Pencil on white wove paper, 104 x 148 mm

Despite Finberg’s description of this subject as a ‘tunnelled passage’, Turner’s few pencil lines seem indecipherable.
