One of 15 sketches by Constable which were removed from the recently discovered Hornby Album and sold at Crewkerne.

This drawing comes from the larger of 2 sketchbooks used by Constable in 1816 and belongs to a group of pages which he apparently removed and mounted on larger sheets. Shows the Town Quay and Anchorage from the Platform, which no longer exist.


Mary Christina Hornby; by descent to Lawrence of Crewkerne.
