Hermia and Lysander

Hermia and Lysander is a watercolour painting using gouache created in 1870 by the British illustrator John Simmons. Based on events in Act II, Scene II of William Shakespeare's comedy play, A Midsummer Night's Dream, it depicts Hermia and her lover Lysander lost in an enchanted wood and surrounded by fairies. Hermia and Lysander, which measures 89 by 74 centimetres (35 by 29 in), set a record sales price for a Simmons painting in 2012, when it was auctioned for £42,470 by Sotheby's.
