Rupert Brooke: photographs by Sherrill Schell, 1913

7 Portraits in set

A set of photographs of Brooke taken in the spring of 1913 on a foggy day, without any artificial light, in the living room of Schell's flat in St George's Square, Pimlico. The poet was photographed wearing a blue shirt and blue necktie, described by the photographer as 'a curious affair, a long piece of silk wide enough for a muffler, tied like the ordinary four-in-hand'.
