Scholarly Commentary


This is one of a pair of composite humorous drawings that were apparently initiated by Burne-Jones shortly after he and his wife moved into their home in Great Russell Street. The result is a kind of "exquisite corpse" drawing to which DGR, Brown, and Morris also contributed.
