Joseph Kahill painted this portrait of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882) after the poet's death. It is based on a photograph taken by the Lamson Studio in Portland in 1878.

Longfellow's poems belong to the "Romantic Movement" of the 1800s. His work was so popular abroad that in 1855 in London, 10,000 copies of '"The Courtship of Miles Standish" were sold the first day.
