Macbeth and Banquo, on a hill-top surrounded by wind-swept trees, in Scottish dress and armour, one leaning on his sword, the other gesturing outward with both arms, addressing the three witches, who stand to left, holding staffs, one pointing at the men; to right, the nobles' men try to restrain the frightened horses; in the background to left, a herdsman running down the hill, following his flock and to right, lightning strikes above a castle on a hill-top; after Zucarelli; touched proof. 1770 Etching with touches of graphite
