Ellen Terry as Lady MacBeth

Ellen Terry as Lady Macbeth 1889 by John Singer Sargent 1856-1925

Today is the birthday of the great American portraitist John Singer Sargent (1856-1925). His 1889 portrait of Dame Ellen Terry as Lady MacBeth seemed an appropriate painting of his to celebrate on this particular blog this morning. It’s been in the Tate Museum since 1906. Enjoy that crown, Mrs! You won’t be wearing it for very long.
