The Haydon one shows similarity to the life mask which his sister said was " a perfect copy of the features of my dear brother."I don't think the Brown drawing looks much like the life mask ( the mouth looks all wrong)) but Severn's charcoal drawing ( my avatar does). I find it quite fun looking at all the likenessess and comparing! Though the face changes with expression and even photographs can make a person look different in one shot from another. But they all show he had an attractive face and nice skin ( and beautiful hair) :D
John....you did not live to see-
who we are because of what you left,
what it is we are in what we make of you.
