In 1856 the newly founded National Portrait Gallery in London was presented with a compelling painting of Shakespeare known as the Â"ChandosÂ" portrait. Yet, 150 years later, few scholars agree that a true contemporary portrait of the most famous playwright in the history of English literature actually exists. Using the questionable authenticity of this portrait as its starting point, this unique and fascinating book examines the connections between theatrical performance and ShakespeareÂ's references in the visual arts. Featuring numerous portraits and images of costumes, theater models, manuscripts, and maps, Searching for Shakespeare looks at the artistÂ's overall biography and lifeÂ's work. Portraits of ShakespeareÂ's contemporaries are also includedÂ-Â-fellow actors, entertainers, and playwrights as well as his patrons. Insightful essays by distinguished scholars discuss a range of themes, from Shakespeare's sonnets, fame, and professional connections to his relationships with his actors, dramatists, and courtly and public audiences. They also reveal interesting background on the provenance and scholarship surrounding the Â"ChandosÂ" portrait, which has been copied, purloined, and reproduced since it was first linked with Shakespeare at the beginning of the eighteenth century. For anyone interested in Shakespeare, the mystery surrounding his identity, and the performing and visual arts of the Elizabethan period, this is an essential book to own; 239 pages; Physical desc. : 239 p. ; 29 cm. Published to accompany the exhibition held at the National Portrait Gallery, London, 2nd March - 29th May, 2006, and at the Yale Center for British Art, New Haven, 24th June - 27th September, 2006.
