'Portrait of Shakespeare', 1790s, (1910). Forgery, purporting to be a self-portrait of Shakespeare by William Henry Ireland. Absence of historical records has, at certain times, provided an irresistable opportunity for literary forgers. One of the most infamous incidents occuring in London in the 1790s. William Henry Ireland, (1775-1835), son of publisher and avid Shakespeare collector Samuel Ireland made forgeries in order to impress his father, an avid Shakespeare collector. From The Connoisseur Vol XXVIII. [Otto Limited, London, 1910]
This giclée print delivers a vivid image with maximum color accuracy and exceptional resolution. The standard for museums and galleries around the world, giclée is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are “sprayed” onto high-quality paper. With the great degree of detail and smooth transitions of color gradients, giclée prints appear much more realistic than other reproduction prints. The high-quality paper (235 gsm) is acid free with a smooth surface.
