Tassaert repeatedly drew loves of the gods. Executed in a sensual, or even erotic way, these compositions guaranteed him a small source of income. Among other known compositions, we can mention Nymph and Faunat the Cleveland museum, Bacchus and Erigone and A Young Sleeping Girl surprised by a Satyr. Our drawing can also be related to a painting that recently appeared on the art market.
