Antique English painting from the second half of the 19th century. Artwork oil on canvas depicting a subject taken from William Shakespeare's Macbeth, The prophecies of the witches, of excellent pictorial quality.

B. J. attributable to the famous English painter Edward Burne Jones (1833-1898), lacking authentication and additional documentation. Painting with a dark background, deliberately gloomy and theatrical, where the witches surround Macbeth and in the lower right corner a child holds a twig in his hands (referring to the third prophecy, see photo).
