This drawing is reminiscent of those that Fuseli produced while living in Italy between 1770 and 1779. Upon his arrival in Rome he quickly fell under the combined influences of the antique, mannerism and Michelangelo. Here, working with dramatic light, elongated lines and a striking composition, he has created an image of great power, intensity and monumentality.

The drawing's subject has not yet been fully comprehended, although Professor David Weinglass has previously suggested that the pensive female figure may be Bathsheba, while the man behind might represent a messenger in the service of her admirer King David (2 Samuel, 11, 1-27).
