COLIN, Alexandre-Marie
(b. 1798, Paris, d. 1873, Paris)

Othello and Desdemona

Oil on canvas, 51 x 61 cm
Private collection

Colin may first have become interested in depicting Shakespearean subjects when he visited London in 1824 in the company of Delacroix and Bonington. The Othello and Desdemona is a bravura work, faithful to the text, and full of energy and colour.
