Content and structure elements
Scope and content
Original pencil sketch made in 1881 when Percy Ives, then an art student at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, visited Whitman at his home in Camden, New Jersey.
In 1915 Ives presented the drawing to Powys when the novelist traveled to Detroit, Ives' home town, to begin a series of lectures. Powys subsequently gave the drawing to his sister Philippa, probably after she had visitied Whitman's home in Camden in 1923-1924.
The drawing is signed by both Ives and Whitman. Reframed in 2012 displaying all inscriptions.
