      • Product Description: Greetings card and bookmark featuring Shakespeare's Flowers. Based on a painting Soane acquired by Clara Maria Pope; The Bust of Shakespeare encircled by all the Flowers Mentioned in his Work, 1835, which Soane purchased for the sum of £35 in 1835 after it was exhibited at the Royal Academy. Soane venerated Shakespeare and paid homage to him by constructing a Shakespeare Recess in his house in Lincoln's Inn Fields, which has recently re-opened as part of the completion of phase one of the Opening Up The Soane project. This picture shows a bust of Shakespeare surrounded by all the flowers mentioned in his works. © Sir John Soane's Museum 2012.
