The girl here has similarities with the figure in 1904P297 in Birmingham's collection. In the opinion of Christopher Newall the connection with Beata Beatrix seems unlikely, the subjects are quite different, and this drawing relates more closely to other sketches of sleeping girls. Is this possibly Elizabeth Siddal?

Purchased and presented by subscribers, 1903.
