The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 13.0403 Monday, 11 February 2002
Date: Saturday, 9 Feb 2002 13:25:13 -0500
Subject: Conference Announcement
An Interdisciplinary Conference
November 14-16, 2002
The recent discovery of the "Sanders Portrait" in Canada has intrigued
many with the question: is this a portrait of William Shakespeare,
painted in 1603? This conference aims to bring together art, theatre and
costume historians, paleographers, scientists, genealogists and others
who have a stake in this issue, to attempt to answer this question from
as many viewpoints as possible.
We expect that the portrait will be on display for members of the
conference. In the meantime it can be viewed on the Internet in many
websites, such as http://www2.localaccess.com/marlowe/portrait.htm
This conference is jointly sponsored by Records of Early English Drama
and the Art Gallery of Ontario. Further announcements will be made when
the Conference website is completed.
