This is a beautiful hand signed art print/poster of London’s Theatre Royal Drury Lane at night, using my original illustration.
I think it’s fair to say that the “Lane” is regarded as the premier theatre in central London. Due to its size and glamour, this is the venue for the most ambitious new musicals. Many famous stars have performed here – including Nell Gwynne, David Garrick, Henry Irving, Edmund Kean, Ellen Terry, Dan Leno, Joseph Grimaldi, Ivor Novello, Herbert Lom, Ginger Rogers, Julie Andrews, Rex Harrison, the Bolshoi Ballet and John Travolta.
There has been a theatre on this spot since 1663. The current building dates from 1812. This large venue seats over 2000 at the moment and is significant for its glorious grand staircase and in having two Royal Boxes – one for the monarch and one for the Prince of Wales on opposite sides of the auditorium. This was due to George III and his eldest son and heir having a huge row on a visit to the theatre, which led to the venue ever afterwards being divided into two, the king’s side and the prince’s side.
The theatre is reputedly the most haunted in the world – the most famous and frequently seen ghost being the Man in Grey, who prefers to manifest in daylight hours. If you want to know more about London’s theatre ghosts, take a look at my London’s Haunted Theatres art print.
The print is on fine quality paper and available in A4 or A3 sizes, for which there are many frames available.
There is a white border around the image to allow for the signature.
Some of the photos show how great Theatre Royal Drury Lane at night will look framed, but please note that the print is sold unframed and without a mount.
All prints are individually signed by me, the artist, in pencil in the bottom right and include the title of the print.
Your print will be sent by Royal Mail and presented in a cello bag with a cardboard back for protection or onward delivery.
