Cotman, John Sell (1782 - 1842)
Boats Moored at a Tower; a Reminiscence of Turner's Tabley House Pictures. Pencil. Signed and dated, 1823. 9.25x13.25 inches. Framed: 15x18 inches.

Turner's Tabley House pictures of 1808 - Tabley, Cheshire, the Seat of Sir J. F. Leicester, Bart.: Calm Morning and Tabley, Cheshire, the Seat of Sir J. F. Leicester, Bt.: Windy Day - were shown at the R.A. in 1809 and again at Sir John Leicester's gallery in 1819 when Cotman may have been reminded of the composition. We are grateful to Tim Wilcox for his help cataloguing this drawing.
