This drawing is one of Fragonard's designs for illustration to Ludovico Ariosto's epic poem, "Orlando Furioso", which the artist produced during the 1770's and 1780's, but were never published. There are six other brush and wash drawings by Fragonard from this "Orlando Furioso" series in the Library's collection (Acc. No. 2001.61:1-6).
