Three portrait studies of Charles Dickens


These three portrait studies of Dickens acting were drawn by his friend Daniel Maclise, an artist who was a member of the Royal Academy. Dickens was an exuberant theatergoer and would often reenact scenes for his friends, emulating famous actors of the day.
