WAG 1690


This costumiers tracing is of a costume design by George William Harris (1878-1929) for the part of 'Queen Elizabeth' in Act 2 of the play 'Will Shakespeare'. Harris was born in Warwickshire but spent the majority of his life living and working as an artist in Liverpool. His father was a Theatre Manager by trade and his own career was largely based in a theatre setting. Harris worked closely with the founder of the Liverpool Repertory Theatre, Basil Dean (1888-1978), producing many costume and set designs for Dean's plays.
