The latest episode of “The Big Read” explores an intriguing work of art and the bitter legal battle it sparked. Passed down for centuries, the so-called “Sanders portrait” may (or may not) be the only painting of William Shakespeare created during his lifetime. In a story that reads like its own Shakespearean tragedy, the portrait is now in limbo, with the final act yet to be written. It’s a great read you won’t want to miss.
