'The execution, format and subject of this drawing are characteristic of the sketches Bonington was making while in residence at Dunkerque for much of the year 1824. The dimensions indicate that this sheet was also part of a dismantled sketchbook with panoramic format common to the period and his practice. For comparable sheets see Patrick Noon, Richard Parkes Bonington, The Complete Drawings, New Haven and London, 2011, nos. 159ff.' (Patrick Noon, 2023). We are grateful to Patrick Noon for his help in cataloguing this drawing.
