New Acquisition at the Folger

Posted in resources by Editor on May 22, 2010

James Northcote, "Romeo and Juliet, act V, scene III," ca. 1790

Last fall, Enfilade included a posting on Sotheby’s Old Master & Early British Paintings auction (29 October 2009), with reference to James Northcote’s painting of the tomb scene from Romeo and Juliet. Erin Blake, Curator of Art and Special Collections at the Folger Shakespeare Library, notes that the Folger acquired the picture — all 9 x 11 feet of it! Details can be found here and here.
