Watercolour over pencil heightened with stopping out and gum arabic. This watercolour, in exceptional condition, is a rare Norfolk view by Varley. He exhibited three views in or near Cromer at the Society of Painters in Watercolours in 1823 and 1824 of which this is likely to be one. For another view of Cromer dated 1834, see Adrian Bury, John Varley of the `Old Society', 1946, pl. 57.
