Description

One of Ney’s final works of art depicts the famous sleepwalking scene from Shakespeare’s tragic play, when Lady Macbeth, haunted by her role in the murder of King Duncan, wrings her hands and tries in vain to wash imaginary blood from them. The final marble version is now in the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, DC. Carved on its plinth is Lady Macbeth’s memorable quote: “All the perfumes of Arabia will not sweeten this little hand. Oh! Oh! Oh!”
