Here is a little background to this etching and its subject matter – Hugh McCrae associated Virtue with Keats:
Virtue, without any doubt, is the most wonderfully beautiful picture I have ever seen. Essentially a poet’s vision; I cannot imagine any dream-translation approaching so closely the actual adventure of the mind. The nearest earthly achievement would perhaps be allowed to John Keats whose spirit I think must have rejoiced at the begetting and birth of his loveliest creation. It is of our other world “Immortal subject for immortal eyes.” The spade-fingered mechanics of art will be so blinded by its heavenly fire as that they shall not even dare to utter their accustomed blasphemies.
