Filmmaker Ann Henderson and her film The Battle of Wills

Battle of Wills tells a story of obsession and intrigue in the art world. Lloyd Sullivan
believes he owns the only portrait of Shakespeare done from life, created in 1603
by an ancestor who was a bit actor in Shakespeare’s troupe. Thirteen scientific
tests have proven that the Sanders portrait is an unaltered painting from the early
17th century. But is it Shakespeare? Lloyd Sullivan is risking his lifetime’s savings
to prove that it is. Battle of Wills travels from the high tech labs of North America,
to the art galleries of Bond Street and the wind-swept castles of the English
Midlands to unravel the mystery behind a painting that shook the art world.

All events are held in the Forum of Sidney Harman Hall at 610 F St. NW, Washington, D.C. Reservations not required.

Happenings at the Harman brings the community up close and personal with the performers and performances at the Harman Center for the Arts as well as throughout the metro-D.C. community.
