Catalogue Note

Edward Burne-Jones executed several works on the theme of Cupid's Hunting Fields : the Art Institute of Chicago keeps a watercolor from 1885 and the Delaware Art Museum, Wilmington, has an oil on panel on a gesso preparation, from 1880. Our drawing, with a naked Cupid, is probably a study for the 1885 version.
