Details: This poster is of a Portrait of Willaim Wordsworth, by Benjamin Robert Haydon. It shows an older man with his arms crossed as he looks down.
Benjamin Robert Haydon (26 January 1786 ¿ 22 June 1846) was an English historical painter and writer. Haydon was well known as a lecturer on painting and design, and from 1835 onwards visited all the principal towns in England and Scotland on lecture tours. His ambition was to see the chief buildings of Britain adorned with history paintings representing her glory. Of his three great works - Solomon, Entry into Jerusalem, and Lazarus - the second is generally regarded as the finest. Solomon shows his executive power at its loftiest, and is of itself enough to place Haydon at the head of British historical painting in his own time.
