Celebration Quotation – February 18, 2016

"My age is as a lusty winter; frosty, but kindly." As You Like It; Act II, Scene 3

The image, by French artist Mathilde Odier, is a watercolor illustration of the play that from the book The Plays and Poems of William Shakspeare (William Shakespeare), Accurately Printed from the Text of the Corrected Copies, Left by the late Samuel Johnson, George Steevens, Isaac Reed, and Edmond Malone – printed in 1833.  We couldn’t find much information about the artist, except that she was a friend and contemporary of the writer Georges Sand.
