This colourful and freely drawn watercolour may relate to Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's Faust, the celebrated tragic play that was published in 1832. The figure on the right, leaning against the wall, could well be the evil Mephistopheles, while the couple descending the flight of steps, may be Faust and his lover Gretchen. 

This watercolour was once owned by Edward Croft Murray, highly respected art historian and Keeper of the Department of Prints and Drawings at the British Museum from 1954 to 1973.
