Artist's description:

Hamlet emmêlé dans sa folie tenant le crâne de Yorick

Hamlet entangled in his madness holding Yorick's skull

"Takes the skull

Alas, poor Yorick! I knew him, Horatio: a fellow
of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy: he hath
borne me on his back a thousand times; and now, how
abhorred in my imagination it is! my gorge rims at
it. Here hung those lips that I have kissed I know
not how oft. Where be your gibes now? your
gambols? your songs? your flashes of merriment,
that were wont to set the table on a roar? Not one
now, to mock your own grinning? quite chap-fallen?
Now get you to my lady's chamber, and tell her, let
her paint an inch thick, to this favour she must
come; make her laugh at that. Prithee, Horatio, tell
me one thing."

"Celui-ci ? Laisse-le-moi voir, je t’en prie ! Hélas ! pauvre Yorick ! Je l’ai connu, Horatio ! — C’était un garçon d’une gaieté infinie ; il m’a porté vingt fois sur son dos. Ici pendaient ces lèvres que j’ai baisées cent fois ! et maintenant elles me font horreur à regarder. Où sont vos plaisanteries maintenant, Yorick ? Vos éclairs de gaieté ? Allez maintenant trouver madame dans sa chambre, et dites lui qu’elle a beau se mettre un pouce de fard, il faudra qu’elle en vienne à ceci, Yorick. Horatio, je t’en prie, dis-moi une chose, crois-tu qu’Alexandre ait eu cette mine-là ?
