Here is an absolutely stunning dramatic brilliantly rendered signed published original charcoal drawing of actors Sir John Guelgud, Dame Judith Anderson, and Florence Reed from their seminal 1947 Broadway production of Euripides' Medea, by the celebrated portrait artist Louis Lupas, likely published in the Herald Tribune's theatre section at the time of the play's premiere. Louis Lupas is widely acclaimed for his portraits of Presidents, politicians, and other high-profile figures. Lupas first honed his drawing skills as an artist for the Herald Tribune's Theatre section.In the 1950s, Senator Barry Goldwater convinced Louis Lupas to visit Washington D. Where he was soon engaged creating portraits of Presidents, Senators, and members of high society, including sitting Presidents John F. Many of Lupas' portraits were drawn from life, during portrait sittings. Dimensions: 19" by 20 1/2". The 1947 production of Medea is considered one of the high water marks of 20th century theatre, with Judith Anderson's Tony award winning performance among the greatest Broadway performances of all time. This version of Euripides' tragedy was written by the poet Robinson Jeffers and produced by John Gielgud, who also starred. Dame Frances Margaret Anderson(1897 1992), known professionally as Judith Anderson, was an Australian-born British actress who had a successful career in stage, film and television.
