PROPERTY OF THE DESCENDANCE OF MAJOR CLIVE BEHRENS (1871-1935)
Turner painted a number of watercolours of Como at this time. Three examples were sold on the 13th May 1881 at Christie’s and one of those drawings was later presented to the British Museum.1 The very early history of the present two works is unknown, however they have remained in the same family collection since at least the 1930s. We would like to thank Ian Warrell for his help when cataloguing this lot.
1. Lake of Como; view of the lake, with a town at the foot of mountains which surround the lake (British Museum: 1915,0313.84)
