Charlotte at the Tomb of Werther.
Engraving. 310 x 270mm (12 x 10½").
An circular engraving of Charlotte, in a bonnet tied with a broad scarf under her chin and a cloak with a hood, standing sadly at the tomb of Werther. Although Kauffman painted a number of scenes from Goethe's tragedy 'The Sorrows of Young Werther', this engraving is misattributed: it is a reversed copy of a stipple by J.R. Smith, issued 1783.
