List of paintings at the Folger in the Pressly Catalogue

Jump to: navigation, search

The contents of the following tables derive from A catalogue of paintings in the Folger Shakespeare Library : "as imagination bodies forth" by William L. Pressly.[1] Pressly created his catalog to enumerate and illuminate the rich collection of paintings in the art collection at the Folger Shakespeare Library. All paintings and their locations can be found in Hamnet, including those acquired after 1993 and therefore not in Pressly's book.
