1876
Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 73
A scene from Cymbeline, painted by Opie, for the Boydell Shakespeare Gallery. This is a rare specimen of the artist's work--a masterly and very excellent picture. The figures are carefully, beautifully, and correctly drawn, and the whole composition of the highest order of excellence. The expression on the face of the sweet, sleeping Imogene, is finely contrasted with that of Iachimo, who has stolen upon her in the hours of repose. [Pp. 6-7; entry includes the entire Act II, Scene II from "Cymbeline."]
