Cymbeline embroidery - Huber

Shakespeare's story of Cymbeline
Mrs. Saunders and Miss Beach's Academy
Dorchester, Massachusetts c.1807

The highly educated young ladies attending academies in the early nineteenth century were known to have studied Shakespeare's plays and Greek mythology as well as a myriad of other disciplines. According to Shakespeare's play, Cymbeline was the Roman Empire's subservient king of Britain.

The frame and glass are classic John Doggett who is documented to have created frames and glass for Mrs. Saunders and Miss Beach's Academy. See Betty Ring's Girlhood Embroidery (pg.98) for another almost identical "Cymbeline" silk embroidery.

Silk and paint on silk; 23 ½ " x 29 ½" framed.
