The subject illustrates Keats' poem 'Isabella' or 'The Pot of Basil', derived from a story by Boccaccio.
One of five studies in Birmingham's collection for the painting 'Lorenzo and Isabella' in the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool, exhibited at the Royal Academy, London in 1849.
Goldman notes: 'It has been suggested that the central sketch caricatures Rossetti's drawing of 'A Parable of Love' - also in the Birmingham collection.
