John Keats's death-mask
Casts were made of Keats’s face, foot and hand on the morning after his death, probably by Gherardi, Canova’s mask maker in Rome. Severn used the mask for his posthumous portrait of Keats reading at Wentworth Place. It was eventually sent to Keats’s publisher, John Taylor, in London. This is one of a series of white plaster casts made by Charles Smith between 1886 and 1891.
