This is a study for the unfinished bodycolour painting in the Tate Collection. It shows one of the young girls who offer their hearts up to Venus as she passes in a chariot. The composition began as a tile design in 1861, and in 1898 as a design for a tapestry, later woven by Morris & Co. in 1922-26, now in the Detriot Institute of Arts.
