Shakespeare Illustrated, a work in progress, explores nineteenth-century paintings, criticism and productions of Shakespeare's plays and their influences on one another.

The Introduction to Shakespeare Illustrated

The plays of Shakespeare are listed alphabetically. Under each play is a list of paintings based on that particular work.

The artists are also listed alphabetically. Under the name of each artist is a list of paintings based on various plays by Shakespeare.

The bibliography lists the works cited in Shakespeare Illustrated.

I have begun a new project called Shakespeare and the Players, a survey through postcards of the many now unfamiliar English and American actors who played Shakespeare's characters for late Victorian and Edwardian audiences.
