Helen Mirren and Michael Gambon in the Royal Shakespeare Company’s 1982 production of Antony and Cleopatra


Internationally renowned as a sculptor, Elisabeth Frink was also an extremely fine printmaker producing more than 160 prints between 1964 and 1992. She made lithographs, etchings and, in later years, screenprints. In 1982 Frink was commissioned by the Royal Shakespeare Company to make a colour etching of Antony and Cleopatra to celebrate their production of Shakespeare’s play at The Other Place in Stratford. The title roles were played by Michael Gambon and Helen Mirren and it is they who are depicted in the etching. Frink’s economic lines graphically capture the compelling power of the relationship between the Shakespearian couple with the diminutive, yet seductive and erotic Cleopatra, about to be enfolded in the embrace of the large bear like and lusting figure of Antony. The etching was produced in a limited edition of just 175 copies, each signed in pencil by Frink. It was printed on Velin Arches paper by the renowned Kelpra Studio and impressed with their blindstamp. We feel that this represents remarkable value at only £845 including frame, vat and uk delivery.
