Full-length nude study for the figure of Iphigenia in the painting 'Cymon and Iphigenia', (c.1884, private collection). The pose differs from that of the finished work as the hips lie flat, whereas in the painting they are rotated to face the viewer. Also the figure is turned in the final painting, so that the head is further from the viewer.
