Eve Lloyd Knight for Historiart

How absolutely stunning is this new work by the incredible Eve Lloyd Knight.

We were thrilled when Historiart got in touch with us to commission a print to be sold for the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust depicting Telfth Night.

The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust is an independent charity that cares for the world’s greatest Shakespeare heritage in his home town of Stratford-upon-Avon.

Eve herself describes her thoughts and inspirations surrounding the piece 'The love triangle between Viola, Orsino, and Olivia at the heart of Twelfth Night was my main inspiration for this work. By combining the Elizabethan fashion for ruffs with a hint of New Romantic style, I wanted to create a timeless quality that echoes the enduring appeal of William Shakespeare and this play. The characters float together in a swirling sea of material to emphasize the complex interwoven emotions between the trio, creating a dreamy, mesmeric scene.'

If you would love to take home your very own print that tells this gorgeous dramatic story. They are available to purchase via The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust here.
