Wm. Blake

1825 Portrait by John Linnell    William Blake

I'm currently working on a paper on Blake, and came across the above portrait of him by John Linnell -- an 18th C. contemporary of Blake's I'd never heard of. It's a very fine piece of work, and not the only sketch Linnell did of him. (For another of the ones I found, go here.)
