Antique Engraving King Richard and Queen Isabel from Richard II by Shakespeare
A long time ago I found several books with the plays of William Shakespeare. Each book contained original etchings/engravings and I saved all of them thinking I would one day frome the pieces. Well, I never got around to it so here is one of the many I will be listing on Ruby Lane - all unframed!
Subject Matter: King Richard and Queen Isabel (Shakespeare, King RIchard II, Act 5, Scene 1)
Engraver: William Chevalier (French, Paris 1804–1866)

Medium: Etching and engraving laid down on light stock.
Dimensions: The recessed area measures 5-1/2" x 8" approx. the image size is 2-1/2" x 3-3/8".
Condition is very fine though there is some light foxing within the recessed area (this can be bleached out by a professional). The center image is perfect and clean, this area can be framed with perfection.
