Note in Green and Brown: Orlando at Coombe dates from 1884. It was probably painted soon after July 1884 when Archibald Campbell (1846-1913) and Lady Janey Sevilla Campbell (Lady Archibald Campbell) (ca 1846-d.1923) initiated a series of open-air dramatic performances at Coombe Woods in Surrey.
Shakespeare's As You Like It, with Lady Archibald as Orlando, was the first play performed. 1
