An original late 19th century fine art print of a painting by the Belgium artist, Jan Van Beers, that was on display at the 1893 Columbian Exposition in Chicago. This antique print, was part of the 1893 Geo. Barrie publication of Art and Architecture by William Walton.
Ada Rehan was an American actress and comedian who typified the "personality" style of acting. "The School for Scandal", which she starred in, was a comedy of manners written by Richard Sheridan. Her role as Lady Teazle, was a fictional character, who was a young, flitratious, naive wife.
"This is somewhat of a tribute to Mr. Van Beer's powers of characterization and accurate draughtsmanship, and any one who has the fortune to see this brilliant actress in the flesh........."
Condition: This print is in A condition, with some minor foxing along the outer irregular margin, which does not interfere with the print itself.
