This drawing is hidden behind a list of memoranda in a
notebook used by DGR in the 1860s. Although the sketch is partially obscured
by text, it seems to depict the full-length figure of a nude woman wringing her hair. The scribbles at her feet suggest the
subject of Venus Anadyomene (rising from the sea), but there is also the faintest impression of a perspectival construct around
her. Because of the cursory nature of the sketch, it is difficult to determine whether this design is mythological in nature
), or a domestic interior.
