From Fairthorne's illustration for The Rape of Lucrece in 1655, to The Animated Tales cartoon versions of the plays for children in the 1990s, Whitfield looks at how artists have risen to the challenge of illustrating Shakespeare. With over 100 examples, the study examines famous editions such as the Rowe-Tonson Shakespeare (1709) and Knight's Pictorial Shakespeare (1838-41); trends in art and illustration including Romanticism and the PreRaphaelites; and the work of prominent artists such as William Blake, Henry Fuseli and Millais.
