Lady Macbeth with the Daggers

Oil on canvas, 101,6 x 127 cm
Tate Gallery, London

This painting is a scene from the theater, appropriately lit against a black background. It recalls like no other work by a European painter the mysterious and disturbing wall paintings in Goya's house a few years later.
