A study for the dying king's hands, arms and feet for 'Wheel of Fortune'. Originally appearing as the first predella on the unfinished Troy Triptych. Finally realised as a large independent oil on canvas (1875-83, Musee d'Orsay, Paris).
There are several versions of this subject, beginning in 1870, but it seems this drawing was intended for the 1875 version, now in the Musee d'Orsay. This drawing echoes the work of Michelangelo, particularly the 'Captives' in the Accademia, Florence, which Burne-Jones recorded in his sketchbook from his Italian journey in 1871, and the 'Dying Slave' in the Louvre, of which he owned a small plaster copy (can be seen in photos of his daughter Margaret's bedroom at the Grange).
