Celebration Quotation – March 23, 2016

Today’s quote is from Measure for Measure:

"The miserable have no other medicine, but only hope." Measure of Measure, Act III, Scene 1

The image is an engaging of a work by painter Henry Fuseli (1785-1825).  He was born in Switzerland, but eventually ended up spending much of his life in England.  The works of Shakespeare and Milton were frequent subject matter for his paintings.  Fuseli was a Professor of Painting at the Royal Academy of Art – his style influenced a number of younger artists of his day, including John Constable and William Blake.  You can see more of his work here at the ArtUk website.
