Turner Bequest CCLXXX 141
Stamped in black ‘CCLXXX 141’ bottom right
The support for this watercolour is Bristol board, a type of board sold by most artists’ colourmen.1 The sheet is stamped with a blind embossed stamp ‘BRISTOL | [image of crown] | BOARD’ top left. Like many of the works which were displayed as part of the National Gallery’s loan collections during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries the work has suffered fading and discolouration owing to over-exposure.
