 Abbey. Richard   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
Abbey, for the purposes of the composition of this large canvas and his customary grand style, departs from Shakespeare's text; whereas the scene in the play occurs after Richard has ordered the bearers to set down the hearse, Abbey sets the whole scene in motion, with Anne quite obviously attempting to escape Richard's attention.
Richard III was a popular source for paintings; Richard Altick notes that some fifty paintings are based on the play (281).
The instincts of Abbey when he chose the less frequently illustrated scene of Richard's wooing were nevertheless shrewd; his painting was, Altick says, "the picture of the year" (283) when it was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1896.
