Narcissus Escapes and its verso, Fall of the Rebel Angels

The drawing below from 1993 is another version of Narcissus — this time our hero escapes from the flower that bears his name:

I realized recently that this drawing has a verso — a drawing on its reverse side. It is entitled “Fall of the Rebel Angels”, inspired by Milton’s Paradise Lost. I had forgotten that this drawing was there — I do remember doing it in Paris at the time, but was not sure if it still existed. I remember feeling that is was a little wooden in comparison to some of my other drawings, which flowed more freely. It is a little stiff, I suppose, but I quite like it now.
