We love this historic little print; so evocative of this creative era and the colours have remained strong despite its age.
Ellen Terry as Lady Macbeth is an oil painting by John Singer Sargent that's housed in  Tate Britain.  Painted in 1889, it depicts the actress  in a famous performance as Lady MacBeth in William Shakespeare's  tragedy, wearing a green dress decorated with iridescent beetle wings. The play was produced by Henry Irving at the  Lyceum Theatre, London, with Irving also playing Macbeth opposite Terry. Sargent attended the opening night on 29 December 1888 and was inspired to paint Terry's portrait almost immediately.
Sargent was arguably the greatest figure in American Impressionism, and unquestionably among the best portrait artists of the late-19th and early-20th century,
The decorated ebonized frame looks to be the original and measures 230 mm x 90 mm
