Sitter associated with 23 portraits
Director, stage designer and writer. Craig established a reputation as a leading actor in the 1890s before directing and designing a number of highly acclaimed productions around the turn of the century, including Hamlet for Stanislavsky's Moscow Art Theatre (1912). As a writer on theatrical aesthetics, directorship and acting as well as in his practical ideas for the staging of plays his influence was considerable.
