Item description

Old English painting from the second half of the 19th century. Oil on canvas work depicting subject from William Shakespeare's Macbeth, The Prophecies of the Witches, of excellent painterly hand. A painting of great size, exceptional quality, with a subject that is difficult to find, for antique dealers, interior decorators and collectors. Work with a monogram on a rock at the foot of the main character (see photo) E. B. J. referring to the famous English painter Edward Burne Jones (1833-1898), lacking authentication and additional documentation. Painting with a dark background, deliberately sombre and theatrical, where witches surround Macbeth and in the bottom right-hand corner a young boy holds a twig in his hands (referring to the third prophecy, see photo). Painting adorned with a 20th century carved, lacquered and gilded wooden frame deliberately treated to highlight signs of wear (see photo). Painting that has undergone conservation restoration, re-staining, frame replacement and colour restoration in several places (see photo). Canvas in good condition, with a small central colour drop (to the left of Macbeth's headgear, see photo). Light painting H 97 x W 122 cm.
