Lean and Slippered Pantaloon

Description (Brief)
The character shown in the signed pen and pencil drawing has been misidentified as Shallow rather than “The lean & slippered pantaloon," one of the seven ages of man discussed in Jacques’ famous soliloquy from Act II of Shakespeare’s As You Like It. The illustration is one of a group made by Darley for his gallery of Shakespearean illustrations, which were published by J. M. Stoddart in New York and Philadelphia. For a similar drawing see the website of the Folger Shakespeare Library.
