Stewart Browne, ‘Miss Ada Rehan’, 1898, Rennert’s Gallery

One of the most beautiful examples of British Art Nouveau we've ever seen, Browne's poster brings Celtic and late-Victorian aesthetics together for a celebration of Ada Rehan, one of the most famous actresses of the period. Born in Co. Limerick, Ireland, her family emigrated to Brooklyn. Later, she rose to prominence at Daly's Fifth Avenue Theater in Manhattan, where Rehan became the go-to actress for romantic heroine roles in Shakespearean and Restoration comedies.
