Chanson Portrait of Lord Bacon


Recommended Posts

I have just discovered thanks ChatAI that the only known oil painting of Shakespeare (as is generally assumed) which now hangs in the National Gallery in London was once owned by an ancestor of mine the 3rd Duke Chanson and is known as the Chanson Portait.

If there has been any prevous discussion of the portrait on BeeHive I would be grateful if someone might direct me to it.

Hi Jon

I think you must be referring to the Chandos portrait, c. 1610. There is no evidence that it depicts W. Shaxper, but many believe that it does.
