The design was for a group-wash drawing. The unusual technique has been related to Rodin's early training in the Sèvres porcelain factory, where a process of building up white slips on a dark base was practised. Claude Phillips, who gave the drawing to the British Museum, was one of Rodin's earliest English supporters, and a co-founder of the Art Fund in 1903. This is one of two drawings presented to the museum by the donor.
