This drawing is part of a series of sketches in the British Library's
Small Notebook 1 that appear to be related to the painting,
. Among these are a number of rough landscape
sketches, perhaps made
en plein air during
DGR's walks through the countryside around Kelmscott Manor (Fredeman,
Correspondence, 71.130). There is another, more
dating from this period and depicting similar landscape features.
