In his last years Turner spent time in Margate with Mrs Booth, his companion. He studied the Margate coastline at many different times of day and weather conditions, creating many works in oil or watercolour. This particular study looks across the sand to the Margate harbour. The rough waves and grey sky above the sea contrast with the golden sky above Margate.
