(Edward Henry) Gordon Craig
Sitter in 24 portraits
Director, stage designer and writer (Edward Henry) Gordon Craig was the son of actress Dame Ellen Terry. He 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, Craig's influence was considerable. He is perhaps best remembered for his Modernist writings on theatre.
