Instagram Memorandum header-title 0602121110-00.jpg I am a Baltimore Native and MICA grad, working artist and teacher. I live in rural WV, just outside of Shepherdstown. I make things everyday. I live on a big old farm with my boyfriend and fellow artist M. I love kids, dachshunds, art, good eats, travel, hats, gardening, and canoeing with my man and dog. I speak Japanese. I believe true power and compassion comes through experience. likeamarmoset at gmail dot com!

Sargent, John Singer Ellen Terry as Lady Macbeth 1889 Oil on canvas 87 x 45 in (221 x 114.3 cm) Tate Gallery, London
___
The famous actress, Dame Ellen Terry (1847-1928), is shown here in the role of Lady Macbeth. At the first performance in 1888, Sargent was struck by Terry’s appearance and persuaded her to sit for a portrait. He invented her dramatic pose, which did not occur in the production. Oscar Wilde, who saw Terry’s arrival at Sargent’s Chelsea studio, remarked, ‘The street that on a wet and dreary morning has vouchsafed the vision of Lady Macbeth in full regalia magnificently seated in a four-wheeler can never again be as other streets: it must always be full of wonderful possibilities.’
