The central figure in this study was only used for the oil painting of 'Perseus and Andromeda', now in the Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide.

The scene is comparable with the 'The Rock of Doom' from the Perseus Series of paintings (Series I is now in the Stattsgalerie, Stuttgart; Series II in the Southampton City Art Gallery). Although the figure of Perseus was completely altered in both the Southampton and Staatsgalerie versions.

Presented by Mrs Angela Thirkell, 1952.
