Supernatural Shakespeare

Supernatural Shakespeare brings the Bard’s mischievous witches and faeries to the fore, featuring three atmospheric engravings that emulate the work of renowned Gothic artist Henri Fuseli and are sure to capture the imagination with their intensity and vivid detail. The Nursery of Shakespeare (1810) depicts the infant William Shakespeare already haunted by phantasmal inspirations. The Witches Appear to Macbeth and Banquo (1798) portrays the three sorceresses getting ready to triple the antihero’s toil and trouble, while Titania and Bottom with Ass’s Head (1796) features the enchanted odd couple carousing in their sylvan bower.
