From each of the dramatic scenes of Shakspeare that inspired Retzsch with the subjects of his graphic illustrations, we have considered it would be highly useful to give extracts, for the purpose of explaining the artist's idea.
The publication of Hamlet will be followed by that of Macbeth, King Lear, Othello, Romeo and Juliet, and other works of the english Eschylus. Each series will contain the illustrations of one of Shakspeare's plays, and may be had separately.
Retzsch, a german draughtsman, published some years since a collection of 26 drawings, representing the principal scenes in Goethe's drama of FAUST.
These drawings, where spirit is blended with grace and expression, established his reputation throughout Europe; they have been copied in France and in England. From this artist, who engraved his own designs, we possess also a collection in which he has put in action Schiller's ballad of the DRAGON, and another on FRIDOLIN, which are pearly ready for publication.
