In 1806 Angelica Catalani (1780–1849) appeared at the King’s Theatre London in Portagallo’s opera ‘Semiramide’, and she is depicted here in the title role, dressed in royal robes trimmed with ermine and wearing a diadem on her head, also to denote her status. She stands in a theatrical pose next to an iron gate – a graveyard or a tomb – and small dots of flamingo-coloured paint on the right show that she is sprinkling something.
