Literary Calligraphy by Susan Loy

Poetry Selections - "HAMLET"


Susan Loy of Literary Calligraphy in Moneta, VA, joins text from literary classics or Biblical passages with delicate watercolor images and creates a unique bond between fine art and literature.

" thine own self be true..." joins seven other texts including, "To be, or not to be: that is the question..." The bouquet of 12 flowers are all mentioned in "Hamlet," Shakespeare's memorable play.

The painting's central bouquet, in greens, blues, and roses, pictures the botanical species that Shakespeare would have known when composing his 1603 play. Bordering the bouquet and texts are tiny, detailed formal Elizabethan knot gardens.
