Gerard Johnson Carving Puzzle Details:

About: Today's puzzle is based on a painting by Wallis depicting Gerard Johnson carving Shakespeare's funerary monument. Ben Jonson shows Shakespeare's death mask to the sculptor. Gerard Johnson (flourished c. 1612–1623) is the Anglicised form of Gheerart Janssen, a sculptor who worked in Jacobean England and who is thought to have created Shakespeare's funerary monument. In 1849 a death mask was discovered in Germany, and was claimed to be Shakespeare's. It received great publicity when the anatomist Richard Owen authenticated it and suggested that it was used by Johnson as the model for the memorial. Henry Wallis later painted this imagined scene validating the mask. The mask is no longer considered to be authentic.

In obtaining the subject matter for these works, Bierstadt joined several journeys of the Westward Expansion.
