Combat between Macbeth and young Siward

Dante Gabriel Rossetti

General Description

Date: 1834 (circa)


Scholarly Commentary


Like the Talbot rescuing his son John from Orleans drawing and other now untraced early works, we know of this picture from WMR's report of it in his Memoir . As here, a number of the drawings were taken from subjects in Shakespeare.


DGR is illustrating Act V scene 7 from Shakespeare's Macbeth.
