Portrait of Shakespeare
Portrait of Shakespeare
This picture is the work of 90 artists, painted on 23rd April 2006 to mark Shakespeare's birthday. The artists were all amateurs, each of whom had a canvas and a section of the picture to copy from. It was amazing that the result actually looked like the subject when all the canvases were assembled and fixed onto the frame. Judi Dench and Patrick Stewart unveiled the finished picture as it hung on the wall of the Royal Shakespeare Theatre.
