The Winters TaleGeorge Mayhew
An original poster for the 1969/70 Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) production of The Winter’s Tale. Directed by Trevor Nunn, the production was notable for its stylised white décor, contemporary 1960s costumes, and the acclaimed doubling of the mother and daughter roles of Hermione and Perdita by Judi Dench. George Mayhew’s striking poster design was highly acclaimed at the time and examples of his work for the RSC and the National Theatre are in the permanent collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum.
