Biographical / Historical
John Boydell was an engraver and publisher who established the Boydell Shakespeare Gallery in London, England in 1789, in which he featured paintings depicting scenes from William Shakespeare's plays by many of England's most eminent artists of the day. Many of these paintings were subsequently turned into engravings for folio editions released between 1791 and 1803.
