This is a portrait of Romantic poet Mihail Eminovici from 1869, and that seems exactly right, doesn’t it? Of course he has a flowing mane and a three-piece suit.
He is considered the greatest Romanian poet ever. Here’s a poem called Lacul (or The Lake) if you’d like to check out his work.
Eminovici likely died from mercury poisoning, part of a treatment, at age 39, and his final request was for a glass of milk.
It's good etiquette to share what you like!Tweet
