This coloured headpiece, outlined in a black rectangular border, is positioned in landscape orientation above the text. In the left foreground, Henry Irving in the character of Dante, depicted from the waist up, stands in profile on a stage, facing right. He wears brown robes and a red hat with a cloth extension down his back. His outstretched arms extend toward a rat in the right foreground. The rat’s body faces away from the viewer, with its neck turned back to look toward the man. Behind and between them is a row of silhouetted male and female actors in various costumes, coloured brown against a black background. The artist’s monogram is in the bottom right corner of the frame.
