This picture depicts Orpheus with his lute on his way to Hades to bring back his deceased wife, encountering the soul of the damned Ixion tied to a wheel and spinning through eternity beside the river Styx. It was one of a series of seven designs made by Burne-Jones to narrate the story of Orpheus in Morris’ The Earthly Paradise and made into small paintings in 1872, according to the artist’s account books. Two of the designs are in the collection of Tate and four were offered in these rooms (14 December 2017, lot 6).

‘Proud Ixion (doomed to feel The tortures of the eternal wheel Bound by the hand of angry Jove) Received the due rewards of impious love.’
Sophocles
