LOOK HERE UPON THIS PICTURE, THEN ON THIS Shakespeare, Art & Music

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: Look Here Upon This Picture, Then On This is a weekly opportunity to compare works of art from the world’s great gallery of homage to Shakespeare’s plays. Here, in painting after painting, artists have felt driven to recreate the enduring charisma of the Bard’s most famous characters and so celebrate the dramatic turning-points in the plays which changed lives then and have done so ever since for theatre-goers and have done so ever since for theatre-goers and readers alike. Opera and music will be featured each week too.


“WING’D CUPID PAINTED BLIND” (A Midsummer Night’s Dream)

To do faery in style, you have to sail close to the wind of sentiment and risk the rocks of kitsch. Blake and Richard Dadd are in a Dream team of their own, Arthur Rackham is a world apart, and Reynolds, Singer Sargent, Fuseli and
Landseer explore the human and non-human relationships Shakespeare plays with.
