Art to Enchant:

Illustrators and Shakespeare

An Exhibition from the Special Collections of Washington University

With an essay by Douglas Dowd, Assistant Professor of Art, and an Introduction and Checklist by Anne Posega

We invite you to view a wide range of illustrated editions of Shakespeare from 1744 through 1986. Illustrators were challenged by the texts of this great dramatist, whose works were already visually represented on stage. See how they responded to this challenge, and whether or not they were successful, in this fascinating selection of books
