Description

The Laughing Philosopher: American poet Walt Whitman (1819–92)[1]

This image was made in 1887 in New York, by photographer George C. Cox. The image is said to have been Whitman's favorite from the photo-session; Cox published about seven images for Whitman, who so admired this image that he even sent a copy to the poet Tennyson in England. Whitman sold the other copies.[2]

Currently vended commercially, in a format suitable for magazine & book reproduction, by picture library Corbis. The image was apparently originally in the collection of Charles E. Feinberg, and then entered the collection of the New York Museum of Modern Art under curator John Szarkowski.

Cox. He liked one of Cox's portraits so much that he titled it "The Laughing Philosopher," sent an autographed copy to Tennyson, and put other copies on sale to supplement his income.”
