A portrait of John Donne (1573–1631), bearded and attired in a black garment. This portrait is thought to be a copy after a painting now in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum (Victoria and Albert accession number: DYCE.5) painted c.1622. The St Paul's Cathedral portrait was engraved by Pierre Lombart and published as the frontispiece to Donne's published letters in 1651.
