This painting, Lear Banishing Cordelia, is by Swiss artist, Henry Fuseli. It is in the Art Gallery of Ontario’s permanent collection (AGO) but currently in the exhibit, Drama and Desire – Artists and the Theatre. Fuseli emphasized the banishment of Cordelia by Lear. Lear’s finger and toe point toward Cordelia. He gazes at Cordelia in anger. The highlight on the front knee is facing Cordelia. Fuseli also used clothing to outline the forms and again emphasize the direction towards Cordelia. The cloth on the arm and leg circles these forms. Look at the painting and view other techniques the artist used to emphasize the relationship between Corderlia and Lear.
