One of four half length studies Birmingham's collection for court ladies in the watercolour entitled 'Theophilus and the Angel'. Two versions of the painting were made, one was destroyed in the second world war (1863), the other (c.1866) was sold at Sotheby's in 2008.
In this study, Burne-Jones explores the pose of a veil thrown around the head of a court lady.
