Brian H. Jackson A Note On The Winter's Tale
Rick Williams
The Play
The title of this play puts the audience in mind of the seasons, and
the changes they reflect, thereby making humans aware of time. And
time and its processes are a central concern of The Winter's Tale.
The play begins in winter, where we immediately witness the
accelerating plunge into violent extremes which is characteristic of
tragedy, and also the increasing isolation of the main character.
Leontes loses all sources of human contact - he becomes estranged
from his wife, his life-long friend, his son, daughter, councilors,
court, and even the higher powers, as represented by the oracle.
Leontes's actions are unnatural and they call forth a response from
the natural world: from the wild animals, the storm at sea, and a
kind of permanent winter in his kingdom. And with all this comes
the final realization that his own flawed behavior is the origin of all
the suffering.
In the source from which Shakespeare transformed the tale, the
story ends here with the king's suicide. But this is only the
beginning of The Winter's Tale. At the end of the second act, the
audience suddenly sees the action shift outside of the court and the
tragedy and into the world of shepherds and country folk who are
intimately connected, through their livelihoods, with the cycles of
nature. A sixteen year gap in time provides a connection between the
seasonal cycles and the cycle of human generations, as well as an
opportunity to go through and beyond the tragic fall, and explore
what happens on the other side.
The Plot
Leontes, King of Sicilia, suspects his wife Hermione of adultery
with his life-long friend Polixenes, King of Bohemia. His rage
forces Polixenes to flee, Hermione to die of shame, and then he has
her new-born daughter taken to a desolate coast, and left there by
Antigonus, one of his lords.
The oracle of Apollo declares that Hermione is innocent, that
Leontes is a jealous tyrant, and that he will die without an heir
should he fail to recover "that which is lost". The oracle is
confirmed by the death of Mamillius, Leontes's son. Reproached by
Paulina and repenting of his obsessive jealousy, Leontes goes into
The infant daughter, Perdita, is found by the country people of
Bohemia, who cherish her. As Leontes pines, Perdita grows into a
beautiful and graceful woman. Florizel, son of Polixenes, falls in
love with her despite her poverty and seeks to marry her without his
father's knowing. When discovered by Polixenes, Florizel and
Perdita flee. They reach Leontes's court, where it is discovered that
the girl is the lost princess. Perdita is married to Florizel, Leontes is
reconciled to Polixenes and Hermione is restored to life.

(604)222-1688 Is It Possible To Have An Oil Painting
Which Doesn't Fade In Sunlight ?
1. The Old Holland Painting Masters used these colours. For example;
Rubens, Vermeer, Van Gogh etc.
2. All 75 colours absolutely permanent. Only factory in the World.
3. AH 75 colours made on stone equipment.
4. In the U.S. they say our colours are the King of oil colours.
5. Restoration work has been done to famous paintings in museums
in Paris, Moscow, New York, and Amsterdam with Old Holland
Oil Colours.
6. Fillers like chalk and aluminum hydrate are never used in Old
Holland Oil Colours.
7. Only stable lead tubes with a tin cover are used, that saves the
paint in the tubes for over 100 years.
8. More and far better results for the consumer or artist, because
there are no fillers which means;
a. more covering power       100%    LlghtfaSt
b. more colour power
c. incredible colour intensity.
9. Since 1664. The oldest factory in the world and the process
of manufacturing is still controlled by artists
10. Colours are more expensive but cheaper in use, because of the
high concentration of Scheveningen pigments- and no fillers!
11. Queen Wilhelmina and Queen J uliana of Holland always used
theses colours.
12. In the World-famous Amsterdam State Acadamy all lessons are
given with Old Holland Oil Colours.
I3.01d Holland Oil Colours are stilt made as in the 16th Century
14. Every tube is its own colour card, because of the hand-painted strip on the
outside of every tube. The colour indication does not change, like printed colour
tubes do.
15. After making the paint on stone equipment, the paint can only be filled by hand into
me tube and not as with industrial colours, by machine because the paste is very
16. Stone equipment gives no change to the pigments, metal equipment goes fast and
gives change of colour in the pigment, especcially earth colours. We use only
stone equipment.
17. Old Holland colours are less transparent, because they are not combined with fillers.
Fillers give the possibility to produce quick cheap paint, but the colour is not as
strong as Old Holland Colours.
18. This quality can not be compared with other products with fillers.
19. Cold Pressed linseed oil is taken from only the first pressing, (just like the finest
wines produced from grapes.)
20. Colours without cheap fillers weigh a lot more in your hand {not to mention the
scale) than industrial made modern oil colours with fillers.
