Songs from the Plays of Shakespeare , facing p.40.

A curious, dream-like treatment of the song fromThe Winter’s Tale. Pre-Raphaelite detail spills from the page in this curiosity-cabinet of masks, ‘pins and poking-sticks of steel’, bracelets and gloves. Another dense image in the manner of Fred Sandys.
