Jones was a close friend of Turner and one of his executors. He probably painted this from memory, shortly after Turner's death. With its companion, it forms the only visual record of Turner's last gallery, an extension of his house in Queen Anne Street West, where he exhibited unsold works. Among the paintings which can be identified here are 'Hannibal crossing the Alps' (1812; Tate Britain), 'Dido building Carthage' (1815; National Gallery, London) and 'Frosty Morning' (1813; Tate Britain).
