Henry Peacham made this sketch of a scene from Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus in 1595. Note that Titus (holding the spear) is in a Roman toga, while Tamora, queen of the Goths, wears Elizabethan dress, as do the soldiers behind Titus. We know acting companies used elaborate costumes, but this drawing suggests that performances did not strive for historical accuracy. The figure on the right is the play’s villain, Aaron the Moor. Peacham’s drawing suggests he was represented as black. For a close-up, see the next image.
