(Sir) Edward Coley Burne-Jones - Design for "The Sirens"

watercolour and gouache heightened with gum arabic
the painting itself seems never to have been started, though it was a subject that fascinated him and he made a number of drawings and studies that seem to relate to a proposed painting (originally promised to Frederick Leyland in about 1891).
