There are just two representations of Shakespeare that are unambiguously identified as him, both of which may be posthumous. And yet in the first 40 years of its existence the National Portrait Gallery was offered 60 portraits purporting to be of the Bard. So how can we really know what he looked like? Peter Ross, Principal Librarian at Guildhall Library, reviews the evidence in the hunt for a true likeness of William Shakespeare.
