Although it falls in a sequence of sketches from 28 verso of the sketchbook (D05813) probably exploring the background or landscape motifs of The Goddess of Discord Choosing the Apple of Contention in the Garden of the Hesperides exhibited at the British Institution in 1806 (Tate N00477),1 this seems unrelated and is not otherwise identifiable. There may be some connection with the composition and figures sketched on folios 32 verso and 33 verso (D05821, D05823) which have also been associated with Diana and Actaeon.
Butlin and Joll 1984, pp.44–6 no.57 (pl.67).
