"The Changing Face of William Shakespeare" at the Morgan Library and Museum

Opening today at the Morgan Library and Museum is an exhibit featuring portraits of William Shakespeare. "The Changing Face of William Shakespeare" features the oil on panel portrait by an unknown artist and was inherited by Archbishop Charles Cobbe (1686-1785). The Cobbe portrait pictured above has been determined to be the original of a long series of portraits traditionally identified as Shakespeare. The exhibit runs through May 1. The Morgan Library and Museum is located at 225 Madison Avenue at 36th Street.
