Croft-Murray suggests the figure on the left may be a 'Mezzetino', a regular character from the 'Commedia dell'arte' and that 'The dancing figures on the right in the present drawing appear in the centre right of a picture (in 1931 in the coll. of Mr. Barington White of Cannes) of a very Watteauesque Fete Champetre attributed by M. Rey to Bonaventure de Bar. Sir Karl Parker (in O.M.D.) considers both drawing and picture to be by Angelis.'
