Subject:     Information Please: Beerbohm Tree as Antony


>For the Broadview edition of Julius Caesar, I’d like to use the painting 

>(or is it a photograph?) of Herbert Beerbohm Tree playing Antony in 

>1898 at Her Majesty’s Theatre. For this purpose, I need a high-resolution

>image (1200 by 900 pixels). The best image I can find online is taken 

>from a post card with a much lower resolution.


>Does anyone know where the original painting or photograph is located?


Dear John,


If it’s the painting by Charles Buchel of Tree standing over Caesar’s corpse it is held at the V&A Museum in London – www.vam.ac.uk.
