Joseph Mallord William Turner ?View of the Coast 1807

Joseph Mallord William Turner 1775–1851
Folio 8 Verso:
?View of the Coast 1807
Pencil on off-white white wove paper, 118 x 187 mm
Accepted by the nation as part of the Turner Bequest 1856
This very slight sketch is an extension of the subject on folio 9 (D06526) for which Finberg’s title is retained but only provisionally. The view seems to be framed by large trees and could also be a landscape, perhaps sketched near Guildford or Hindhead like some others in the sketchbook. This portion of the subject was not noticed or described by Finberg.
