- Tragedy -
These three watercolor paintings comprise a triptych entitled Tragedy. Each image in the
collection shows a heroine from a Shakespearean tragedy (Anthony and
Cleopatra, Hamlet, and Romeo and Juliet) at the moment just before death...
Cleopatra dies in truimph; she will not bow down before Rome as Caesar's trophy.
Ophelia dies in pathos; she is too frail to endure a creeping madness.
Juliet dies in passion; she will not live without Romeo, the other half of
her young soul.
