ABOUT THIS PIECE Neoclassicism Movement Painter Nicolai Abildgaard's III Richarde was created in 1787 and the painting is in National Museum of Art, Oslo. The size of the work is 38 x 29 cm and is made of oil on canvas. The small yet highly expressive painting Richard III depicts a dramatic scene wherein the English king awakes in fright. It is Shakespeare’s portrayal of the scene in his drama Richard III (act V, scene III) that has inspired Abildgaard: the king still has the nightmarish visions in his mind’s eye, and the many ghostly apparitions of his relatives are visible only to him. Abildgaard has composed the scene with dramatic lighting of Richard’s muscular, partially nude body. The king’s long, bristling hair and wild eyes accentuate the tension, strength, and movement of the painting. Several commentators have noted the similarities between Abildgaard’s depiction of Richard III and the Greco-Roman sculpture The Horse Tamers on the Quirinal Hill in Rome. The equine connection sprang perhaps readily to mind for Abildgaard, in that “Give me another horse” are the first words spoken by Richard III after waking from his nightmare. The Artist: Danish neoclassical painter Nicolai Abildgaard (1743 – 1809) studied in Rome, where he was primarily influenced by antique sculpture and Roman wall paintings.
