'Miranda' (Emma Hamilton)
A print after a painting of Emma Hart, by George Romney. This dramatic sketch shows Emma posing as Miranda, from Shakespeare's 'The Tempest'. She looks upwards, lips parted, in an expression of concern and pleading as she urges her father to calm the tempestuous seas. Romney's painting of the dramatic moment between Prospero and Miranda (in act 1, scene 2), was his first contribution to Alderman John Boydell's celebrated Shakespeare Gallery. The largest and most ambitious painting he ever completed, it was destroyed in the 1950s and only a few heavily restored fragments now survive. There are however several sketches of Emma as Miranda, for which she sat before her departure for Naples in March 1786.
