    Graham Reynolds notes in his catalogue entry that, while Harold Day described this drawing as a view of the De Vaux Gate, Salisbury, Beckett correctly identified it in his typescript list as the West Gate at Winchester. This is confirmed by Ian Fleming-Williams who suggests it would have been drawn during Constable's visit to Winchester of 1821.
