A few months before his death, John Donne commissioned this portrait of himself as he expected to appear when he rose from the grave at the Apocalypse.[1] He hung the portrait on his wall as a reminder of the transience of life. The next year, a memorial statue of Donne was erected at St. Paul's Cathedral, with the statue carved from this image.[2]
