- Edwin Forrest in the Role of Metamora
Edwin Forrest in the Role of Metamora, c. 1832, Oil on canvas by Frederick Styles Agate
Like Ira Aldridge, Edwin Forrest debuted on the stage as Othello; but unlike the African American actor, Forrest caused a sensation and became one of the American theater's first great actors. Forrest brought a new naturalism to the American stage, one that exemplified the strength and vigor of the American character. In this portrait he is shown as Metamora, "an original of this country," the Indian hero of a play commissioned by Forrest himself.
Forrest became a symbol of American nationalism in the ethnically charged atmosphere of the 1830s and 1840s. In 1849 a nativist mob of his supporters attacked New York's Astor Place Theater, where the English actor William Macready was performing. A panicked police force could not control the riot, and twenty-two people were killed in the melee.
