I wanted to share this picture of Søren Kierkegaard, my all time favourite:

Marstrand’s drawing from 1870

It is by Wilhelm Marstrand (1810-73).

“The same evening that the news of Kierkegaard’s death spread through Copenhagen, out at the poet Johannes Fibiger’s, where he chanced to be, Marstrand made a number of loosely sketched ink drawings of Kierkegaard, from memory – one of his specialities!”

Now the dates do not match up but it is a great drawing and it exemplifies how I see Kierkegaard.
