The present work is based on Edwin Austin Abbey’s composition, “King Lear," Act I, Scene I (fig. 1, 1898, Metropolitan Museum of Art). The central figure is Cordelia, the heroine of Shakespeare’s King Lear, who is depicted just after she is renounced by her father, which takes place in the first scene of the play. The king of France, to her left, kisses her hand. The Philadelphia-born Abbey settled in London, where he shared the contemporary fascination with Shakespearean, historical and medieval subjects.
