There are similar studies in sketchbooks at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge and Birmingham City Art Gallery. It is likely that the present sheet was taken from one of these sketchbooks to be given as a gift to a friend or collector, perhaps by the artist himself or by his daughter Margaret or granddaughter Angela Thirkell who bequeathed the sketchbooks to the museums. A larger figure study for Andromeda (Department of Prints and Drawings at the British Museum) and the painting The Doom Fulfilled, are included in the major exhibition Edward Burne-Jones, Pre-Raphaelite Visionary, presently on view at Tate Britain until February 2019.
