Look Here Upon This Picture: How Shakespeare’s Plays Have Been Inspirational For Painters

January 13 – March 17 2021

Look Here Upon This Picture”, Hamlet’s demand to his mother that she hold his dead father’s picture in one hand and new husband Claudio’s in the other, becomes our cue for a weekly opportunity to compare works of art inspired by Shakespeare by walking through each picture’s frame and into his plays.

In painting after painting, we will see how artists have felt driven to recreate the enduring charisma of the Bard’s most famous characters and the excitement of his plot‐lines, and so celebrate the dramatic turning‐points in some of his greatest plays, which changed lives then and have done so ever since for theatregoers and readers alike.
