The present picture is a version of Watts’ painting of 1885 Idle Child of Fancy (Watts Gallery, Compton) which depicts Cupid, the God of Love sitting on the top of the world. He has his bow in one hand and an arrow in the other and smiles contentedly as tumultuous weather swirls around him. The idea of depicting an allegory of one of the virtues (Love) sitting on a celestial orb was used a year later in 1886 when Watts painted the first two versions of his most famous picture Hope
