Lost, undiscovered Turner...????? !!! Books220

I found this delightful little treasure, in a Car Booty, many years ago, for 50p. Could it be an undiscovered Turner .....?????

I was just going to say - it's a Venetian scene isn't it? Certainly looks like it to me (what I can actually see).

Greendoor, can you please reduce your photo as per my link above and repost a clickable thumbnail? Thanks.

it looks venetian but I think there is too much white paper visible for Turner he usually covered the paper with colour washes and less blue more yellow and red

I doubt very very much if this was turner , it looks too modern in technique for a start , a little bit contrived IMo

Actually paul , some of the broader stern gondolas went to sea in the adriatic so a sail wouldn't have been out of the question , but you are probably right in this case , it isn't by thr great man imo Laughter
