In August 1826 Turner left London and travelled across the Channel to Dieppe from where he embarked on a two month expedition throughout northern France. On his return he selected twenty-one finished watercolours to be engraved and used to illustrate the 1833 edition of Turner's Annual Tour. The present works are 19th Century copies after six watercolours by Turner that are now held in the British Museum, London, and the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford.
