Darwin Portrait by Carl Buell

A few years ago, natural history illustrator Carl Buell composed this neat illustration of a younger Charles Darwin for Darwin Day:

This year, Carl has painted a full-size, later-in-life Darwin (ya know, the bearded Darwin). You may have already seen the painting on Carl Zimmer’s blog The Loom, but here it is:

Carl Buell is allowing people to use this image for your Darwin Day events. In fact, it was commissioned for a Darwin Day event (see here). Carl is able to provide a life-size version of the image. His email can be found in the right margin of his website. Do give him credit for a wonderful likeness! Compare to this image of Darwin
