W. B. Yeats greatly admired the present portrait and it was used as the frontispiece to the second English edition of W.B. Yeats' Poems (London, 1899) (see Wade 17). In his 1940 memoir of Yeats, John Masefield recalled the poet's rooms at 18 Woburn Buildings (around 1900) and wondered '...on the wall to the left side of the window was there not a big black chalk or pencil drawing of him by his father, the original of the portrait reproduced as a frontispiece to the Poems (of 1899)?'
