Description
العربية: اعتُقد طويلًا أنَّ هذه هي الصورة الوحيدة لويليام شكسپير التي رُسمت خلال حياته، إلى أن تمَّ العُثور على صورةٍ أُخرى يُحتمل أن تكون قد رُسمت كذلك قبل وفاته، وهي رسمة كوبّ، التي كُشف النقاب عنها سنة 2009م. تُعرف هذه اللوحة باسم 'لوحة شاندوس' تيمُنًا بمالكها السَّابق، جيمس بريدجز، دوق شاندوس الأوَّل. كانت هذه الصورة أوَّل لوحة يحصل عليها معرض اللوحات الوطني سنة 1856م.
English: This was long thought to be the only portrait of William Shakespeare that had any claim to have been painted from life, until another possible life portrait, the Cobbe portrait, was revealed in 2009. The portrait is known as the 'Chandos portrait' after a previous owner, James Brydges, 1st Duke of Chandos. It was the first portrait to be acquired by the National Portrait Gallery in 1856. The artist may be by a painter called John Taylor who was an important member of the Painter-Stainers' Company.[1]
