The full name of this work is 'The New Moon; or, 'I've lost My Boat, You shan't have Your Hoop'. Contemporary critics made fun of the light hearted subtitle of this work, but it shows Turner’s fondness for children. The coastline in this work is the Kent coast at Margate, which is where Turner often stayed in his later years. Turner worked quickly on this painting. The seascape was partially painted while already in the frame.
