enter image description hereThis is the cover of a Penguin classic - the Love Letters of Keats. But I can't find the painting identified anywhere. Does anyone know it?

  • It sort of reminds me of Ophelia by Millais.

    Could just be something Penguin commissioned for the cover for that one edition. Have you checked the inside of the cover and the first few pages? That's where I generally find info about the cover art, if its something well-known that needs to be acknowledged.
