This is one of a group of Thames views by Cleveley of the same size presumably originating from a sketchbook. Others include `Buccleuch House, Richmond' (Christie's, 5th June 2006, lot 17), `Barges at Mortlake' (Christie's, 14th December 1971, lot 21) and `Under Kew Bridge' (Sotheby's, 15th March 1984, lot 4).
