Celebration Quotation – March 19, 2016

Today’s quote is from The Merchant of Venice:

"How sweet the moonlight sleeps upon this bank!" The Merchant of Venice, Act V, Scene 1

The image – a painting of the scene from which this quote is taken – is an 1859 watercolor by British artist John Edmund Buckley (1824-1876).  We could not find much biographical information on the artist, but you can find examples of his work all over the internet – there’s a good collection here at MutuaArt.com.
