Subject:    Sanders Portrait of Shakespeare at University of Ottawa 
Conference

Dear Colleagues,

I am delighted to announce that an agreement in principle has been 
reached to display the Sanders portrait of Shakespeare in conjunction 
with the _Wartime Shakespeare in a Global Context/Shakespeare au temps 
de la guerre conference_ (September 18 to 20, 2009). This follows many 
months of negotiations with the owner, Lloyd Sullivan, and the War 
Museum. Because of security, insurance, and environmental concerns (as 
well as costs!), the portrait will be displayed at the Museum. 
Registered conference participants will receive free tickets to the 
Museum to view the portrait and to attend a question-and-answer session. 
Complete details will be posted very shortly on the conference website 
at  www.wartimeshakespeare.uottawa.ca. Registration details may also be 
found on the website.

Also, please note that the House of Commons security services require 
that we provide them with a list of those who will be attending the 
conference banquet on the Hill by August 18. Should you be contemplating 
attending, please make sure that you register well before that date.

With thanks,
Irene (Irena) Makaryk

National Gallery of Art, and the busy Byward Market, and within a few 
minutes' drive of the beautiful wooded hills of Gatineau, Quebec.
