In this elaborately finished drawing, the sacrifice takes place in a classical temple dedicated to love. Cupid extinguishes the rose held by the swooning female figure. The drawing is highlighted with watercolor, which is unusual for Fragonard, and is prominently signed, suggesting that it was made not as a study but as a finished work of art in its own right.
