King lear

Lear, Edgar, and Fool

Kenny Meadows [?]


Source: The Complete Works of Shakspeare [sic], I, 133. attributes a similar image of Lear to Kenny Meadows without explanation. Meadows, unlike other artists who created in-text illustrations for the three-volume Shakespeare, usually signs his work with his name or initials. If this is in fact by Meadows it's of higher quality than most of his work. — George P. Landow]
