Both signed "Baskin" in pencil l.r., numbered "19/90" and "53/90," respectively, l.l. Sheet sizes 13 1/2 x 10 7/8 in., unmatted, unframed. Condition: Minor toning.

N.B. These portrait heads are related in that, if not Baskin's vision of William Blake himself, the artists depicted were followers of Blake known as "The Ancients."
