Rooke became Burne-Jones's studio assistant around 1869 and continued devotedly in this role until his master's death in 1898. He was also active in the Arts and Crafts movement and a skilled topographical draughtsman. This oil shows the strong influence of Burne-Jones in the classicising figures, who dance in a timeless landscape with eclectic architecture in the distance.
