"Is anything what it seems? That is the question posed by "Very Like a Whale," a new collaboration between Michael Witmore, Director of the Folger Shakespeare Library, and artist Rosamond Purcell. By juxtaposing books and manuscripts from the Folger collection, natural history objects, Purcell’s photographs, and passages from Shakespeare and other early-modern thinkers, this exhibition explores the interplay between the real world and the world of the Renaissance imagination."
