[Lithograph]: William Shakespeare Brought Before the Magistrate at Charlecote Park
[London]: [T.M. Lean]. 1841. Color lithograph (41.5 x 32 cm). An original color lithograph by the English watercolor painter and lithographer Joseph Nash. A bright impression on wove paper with toning and scattered spotting to the margins and back side, good or better. The scene depicted here is William Shakespeare before the gatehouse of Charlecote Park, a grand 16th century country house located in a deer park on the banks of the River Avon near Stratford-upon-Avon in Warwickshire. Shakespeare was alleged to have poached deer in the park as a young man and been brought before magistrates as a result. Nash's use of multiple color tints and subtle hand-coloring have led some curators to mistake his lithographs for watercolors. Dated 1841, this print was included in his best known work: The Mansions of England in the Olden Time (published by T.M. Lean from 1839-49). .
