Pencil drawing on A4 size Medium Texture Artist Canvas Sheet (primed) – 330 GSM. Size: 21cm x 29.5cm
This is a drawing of Cleopatra after the image of the French actress Claudette Colbert. She was given the part of Cleopatra in the 1934 film of Cecil B. de Mille about the life of Cleopatra.
Cleopatra was the last in the line of her ancient pharaoh ancestors in ancient Egyptian times. The glorious reign of pharaohs came to an end with her death. She commited suicide by having a cobra snake biting her after she heard that Ceasar Octavius of the strong Roman Empire was near her palace. This way she did not suffer the humiliation of defeat by the enemy.
