This is a sketch for one of the pairs of embracing lovers reunited in Paradise, on the left-side of the background of Rossetti’s second version of The Blessed Damozel painted between 1875 and 1879. Rossetti made many sketches for the eleven pairs of entwined figures, three of which are in Birmingham City Art Gallery, one at the British Museum and another at the National Museum of Wales (others have appeared at auction, Swann Galleries, New York, 20 September 2018, lot 140, another Christie’s, London, 13 July 2016, lot 113 and another Christie’s, London, 16 June 2015, lot 50). There is a detailed drawing of all of the figures together at the Fogg Art Gallery in Harvard.
