Joseph Mallord William Turner (English, 1775-1851). Graphite on paper drawing depicting figures along a beach.

Turner's artistic practice involved creating pencil sketches on location, which would later form the basis of a painting. Every summer, Turner would go on a sketching tour, recording scenes that interested him in one of the several sketchbooks he carried with him. He was thorough, consulting guidebooks, interviewing individuals, and collecting evidence to ensure that his paintings were as true to life as they could possibly be, especially for his works recording historical events.

Sight; height: 4 3/4 in x width: 7 3/4 in. Framed; height: 12 in x width: 14 in x depth: 1/2 in. There are no visible tears, creases, losses, or restorations. There is matburn visible along the edges. The work is housed under an acidic mat. Framed under glass. Light wear to the frame.
