Comment: Re: SHK 4.0313 Q: The Chandos Portrait
In reply to Helen Whall, the last I heard the Chandos was being attributed
to Joseph Taylor, both an actor and member of the painters' and stainers'
guild; but it also was being called somebody other than Shakespeare, which
seems to me obviously correct if you look at both its provenance and its
[lack of] relationship to the two unquestioned portraits, the Droushout
frontispiece and the Stratford Memorial.
