Celebration Quotation – April 7, 2016

Today’s quote is from King Lear:

"Fortune, that errant whore, ne'er turns the key to the poor." King Lear, Act II, Scene 4

The image comes with a bit of a mystery: this drawing (dated 1881) is signed “Smythson” – but the Folger Library could not provide any additional information on the artist – even a first name, and our search of artists with the name Smythson didn’t yield much.

If you can identify the artist and provide links to find out more about him – or her, as the case may be – please pass them along!
