This is one of just over sixty drawings securely attributed to Bellange. Focusing on the sinuous upward thrust of movement uniting the figure of the blind giant Orion, bearing the goddess Diana on his shoulders, and executed almost entirely in wash, this sheet is strikingly more fluid than other drawings by the artist. Bellange executed a print of the same subject; however, the differences in pose and proportion of the figures suggest that the present drawing was conceived later than and independently of the print.
