Hello Daniel,

The original Painting of "The Tragedy" is in the National Gallery of Art (please see the below link):

You likely have a printed reproduction of this work.  However, it is difficult to know more without seeing an image. If you can attach a picture, I would be more than happy to take a look.

Best,
