When I visited the Yale University Art Gallery this winter, I completely tell in love with American artist Edwin Austin Abbey’s dramatic painting of a scene from Shakespeare’s Richard III (see above). After viewing his equally-spectacular King Lear painting in the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s American Wing, I was inspired to write an article about Abbey for DailyArt Magazine.
