Portrait of Edwin Forrest as Hamlet. Full length, standing, head very slightly
to left. His right arm is across his front at waist height, and his left arm is
at his side. We wears tunic and short cape attached by cords with large tassels.
He stands before a wall and two round columns, and the whole is backlit (except
for the figure of Forrest) by the full moon, which is partially obscured by the
column at right.
