'He is a wonderful man,' wrote Dorothy Wordsworth, 'His eye is large and full … such an eye as would receive from a heavy soul the fullest expression; but it speaks every emotion of his animated mind.' This portrait was painted for Joseph Cottle who published Coleridge's first volume of poems in 1796.
