Tony Scherman (b. 1950) is one of the most collected and cherished Canadian artists. Scherman's moody palette and sumptuous portraits (whether contemporary, historical or allegorical) reference art history's masters, ranging from Goya to Manet, yet his works are visceral and contemporary.

Scherman's muses are the grande dames of mythology, history and literature. Lady Macbeth, is one of the most fascinating and manipulative women in Shakespeare's oeuvre. Not surprisingly this character has inspired Scherman throughout the years. In this sensual and gentle depiction, Lady Macbeth appears more like one of Degas' Bathers rather than a scheming and sleepwalking royal. 

Tony Scherman's fine prints do not come to market frequently. This piece is a rare affordable entry point for a young collector interested in Scherman.  

Today the artist's work can be found in nearly every public collection in Canada, as well as many international museums including LACMA (Los Angeles) and Centre Pompidou (Paris).

Additional images available on request.
