This work is part of a set of four drawings atributed to Rosa Corder after stained glass windows by Dante Gabriel Rossetti. The head of St George is said to have been modelled on Charles Augustus Howell (1840-90), a one-time secretary to John Ruskin and dealer-fixer of the Pre-Raphaelite movement.

Corder was an associate and mistress of Howell from 1873, who is considered by many to have worked as a faker of Rossetti drawings.

Presented by an anonymous donor through the National Art Collections Fund, 1905.
