Only Known Portrait of Shakespeare To Be Unveiled

http://www.buzz7.com/misc/only-known-picture-of-shakespeare-during-his-lifetime-to-be-unveiled.html Well well well, isn’t this interesting news for a Sunday morning!  It seems that a certain Cobbe family has had in their possession (for some 300 years, apparently) a 1610 portrait of one William Shakespeare.  At least, that’s who they believe it to be.  They’ve got Stanley Wells on their side, and he’s no slouch at this sort of thing. The unveiling is supposed to be tomorrow (Monday, March 9).  Stay tuned! Update:  http://entertainment.timesonline.co.uk/tol/arts_and_entertainment/visual_arts/article5864845.ece  Better link.  Is that an image of the portrait at the top of the article?
