Framed Prints and Pictures

Scope and Content

Comprises several film studio and portrait prints of Richard Burton, both colour and black and white. The pictures comprise drawings of Shakespearean characters, newspaper cartoons and a couple of paintings. Notably, this series includes a framed invitation to Burton to attend a reception at The White House, received from Ronald Reagan in 1983.


The material has been divided in two sub-series: prints and pictures (although the latter is a fairly loose designation, owing to the heterogeneity of the items within this series).
