Linton- Life in the Collections

Henri Roussau de. / L. Seriakoff sc.:

83) Portrait of Eugene Delacroix.

n.p. ca. 1880

The proof was printed from the original block for Linton´s Masters of Wood Engraving (New Haven and London, 1889).  Linton´s criticism of the enraving was mixed: "The coat is nought; but the head is excellent, - both in modeling and in colour, though I object to the black cross-lines on the cheek, chin, and eyebrows, as a waste of labour and as out of harmony with other white line."
