Dame Ellen Terry as Katherine of Aragon Shakespeare Henry VIII

1892 picture of Victorian actress Dame Ellen Terry (1847-1928) as William Shakespeare's Queen Katherine of Aragon in his play Henry VIII. Dame Ellen is wearing a costume designed for a production of Henry VIII at the Lyceum in London by Sir Henry Irving (1838-1905).

I can't find the artist of this - gnash.
