wood engraving, ed. 100

This portrait was made on the occasion of Brussel-Smith’s election to the National Academy of Design. His printer said...a striking figure of authority, rapid in movement, positive, sure! A consummate draughtsman, making pictures perfect in the traditional manner and in the many stages along the way. John DePol
