Artist's Description

“This was the noblest of them all … His life was gentle, and the elements so mix’d in him, that nature might stand up and say to all the world, ‘This was a man! ’Vv 68.’ Antony speaking about Brutus. ‘This was a man’ is the epitaph on the fictional ‘Cassius Hueffler’, one of the characters who speaks beyond the grave in Spoon River Anthology (1915) by the American poet, Edgar Lee Masters.
‘Hueffler’ comments on his gravestone: ‘Those who knew me smile/ As they read this empty rhetoric/ … Now that I am dead I must submit to an epitaph/ Graven by a fool!’
