This acrylic image painted over texture paste on canvas is named after Shakespeare’s “Pericles Prince of Tyre”as it seems to have just as much muddled drama stuffed into it as does this lesser-regarded play. I’ve heard it said that when desperate, Shakespeare would throw in a shipwreck. This play endured more than one, along with kidnappings, presumed deaths, and mistaken identities aplenty. I imagine it would make a good B movie, along the lines of the Harryhausen “dynamation” films of the sixties and seventies.
