Exit Pursued By A Bear Mychael Barratt


Exclusive offer to commemorate the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death.

20% discount off Exit Pursued By A Bear, a new Shakespeare print by Mychael Barratt

On the 23rd of April this year the world will commemorate 400 years since the death of William Shakespeare and there are events galore being planned for this special anniversary. One artist has planned a very special tribute to the bard. Known for his prints and paintings in the English narrative tradition, Mychael Barratt’s work displays a love of history. Language is also hugely important to him, with titles playing an integral part of the work and the action often involves verbal and visual puns and references to artistic and literary themes. It’s no wonder then that Mychael Barratt has been drawn to Shakespeare many times for inspiration and has produced various works celebrating him, including O for a Muse of Fire, which is an A-Z of Shakespeare references and All The World’s A Stage of The Globe theatre.

Mychael Barratt was made a Fellow of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers in 2002 and at the AGM in 2013 was elected its President (PRE). Mychael is a Canadian born London based artist whose fascination with depicting the works of Shakespeare led him to becoming a commissioned artist for Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. He maintained these strong links with the Globe from its inception right through Mark Rylance’s entire ten-year reign as artistic director, during which time Mychael saw every play that Mark Rylance did at The Globe.

This year for the anniversary, Mychael Barratt has produced a new piece, Exit Pursued By A Bear, inspired by Shakespeare’s most famous stage direction given in Act III, Scene 3 of The Winter’s Tale.  The print is deceptively simple. On one level it depicts the Bear but on closer inspection all the main dramatis personae from each of the 38 of William Shakespeare’s plays are revealed, providing lovers of Shakespeare with hours of exploration.

This is an unframed limited edition silkscreen print of 100 copies only and the paper size is 80 x 100cm.
