This is the Signed unique original Pen & Ink Wash by Neville Dear.

This delightful vignette, from Look and Learn no. 107, 1st February 1964, shows a group of Tudor tax collectors vainly hammering on the playwright William Shakespeare's door.

Unbeknownst to them Shakespeare had moved across the Thames to live in Southwark. Shakespeare was paid around £6 per play, somewhere in the region of £1,800 today.
