William Shakespeare portrait

A portrait of William Shakespeare attributed to a little-known artist named John Taylor, and dated by experts to between 1600 and 1610, the Chandos portrait provides an unusually bohemian image of Shakespeare, dressed in black, sporting a gold hoop earring and with the strings on his white collar rakishly untied, on display at the National Portrait Gallery in London as part of an exhibition, Searching for Shakespeare, of portraits and manuscripts from Shakespeare's lifetime, Wednesday, March 1, 2006.
