Pyramus and Thisbe. c. 1745. This shows Thisbe at the moment that she has found Pyramus dead under the mulberry tree. She doesn't quite seem to be experiencing grief yet though as she is not pulling on her hair or pounding on her breasts.

I thought this was funny because so many people don't realize Romeo and Juliet was an adaptation of Pyramus and Thisbe. Shakespeare even used Pyramus and Thisbe as a play within the play of A Midsummer Night's Dream.
