'Fame Decorating Shakespeare's Tomb' Needlework Picture 18th-19th Century

About

This needlework morning picture with watercolor and chenille on silk, was created in the late 18th-early 19th century by an unknown artist. The subject 'Fame Decorating Shakespeare’s Tomb' is based on English artist Angelica Kauffmann’s painting, circa 1772 of the same name. A widely spread print of the painting created by Bartolozzi in 1782, became the inspiration for many needlework mourning pictures in the late 18th-early 19th century in both England and the United States. The name on the tomb of this picture has been left blank. Original reverse painted glass and giltwood frame. Dimensions: 12 1/2 x 9 1/4 inches; framed: 16 x 13 x 1 1/2 inches.
