Original antique topographical print


A pen and wash copy of the etching, aquatint and mezzotint by J.M.W. Turner and Charles Turner, 'Duntanborough Castle the Picture in the possession of W Penn Esqr.', published Charles Turner, 10 June 1808 from Turner's 'Liber Studiorum'. Watermarked paper 'Whatman 1849'. Dunstanburgh Castle is on the coast of Northumberland, about seven miles north-east of Alnwick. Turner first visited the site on his 1797 tour of the north of England, and was still painting the long-ruined castle in the 1830s. Turner had initially produced two oil paintings: one was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1798 as Dunstanborough Castle, N.E. Coast of Northumberland. Sun-rise after a Squally Night (National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne); the other, possibly a study, is smaller, with a stormier sea and dark rocks in the right foreground rising to eclipse the skyline of the castle (Dunedin Public Art Gallery). Faint vertical mark, mainly visible in the margins. Some numbers in pencil in the margins.
