We've toured the Globe before, although I've yet to catch a Shakespearean performance as we're always in London during the off season. Someday...
Although we were on or way to somewhere else, I did ask Steve if I could just pop in the gift shop. There I fell in love with some art that I'd never seen before. In particular, a stunning print of Romeo and Juliet. It was a 'have to have this' moment. I cringed when I saw the price. No doubt marked up for the Globe, plus the American dollar was at a low. I moved on in my browsing, and what do I see? Steve carrying to the print to the cash register! (So sweet!)
I am now the proud owner of this beautiful print of an original watercolour and inkwash drawing by Elizabeth E. Schuch--signed by the artist! (Ignore the faded Immortal markings. That's from the website)
"See, how she leans her cheek upon her hand! O that I were a glove upon that hand, that I might touch that cheek!"
I found the website after I got home. The prices are much more reasonable via this route. The art is beautiful. I think I'm going to start a collection, 'Shakespeare' next. Go browse the beauty at Immortal Longings.
