The Butcher & the young Raleigh (details)

The Butcher & the young Raleigh (details)
Two details:
[left]: Depiction of the Butcher in an illustration by Henry Holiday to the 5th fit in Lewis Carroll's The Hunting of the Snark (1876)
[right]: The Boyhood of Raleigh by J. E. Millais (1869)

The comparison is based on Louise Schweitzer's assumption in One Wild Flower (2012, page 223): "But perhaps Holiday's ruff - and the pose of the Fit Five drawing - was inspired by the Elizabethan drama inherent in Millais' Boyhood of Raleigh, (1869)." (As for the young Raleigh, a son of Millais was the model for the boy.)
