Thomas Nashe
[Add A Photo]
The only known likeness of Thomas Nashe, published in a 1597 satirical pamphlet. As a portrait it's worthless, but as a caricature it's devastating. The leg-irons are a rude reference to Nashe's brief term in a debtor's prison (probably in the early 1590s); his unkempt hair and unbuttoned tunic suggest a callous disregard for the society of his time. The jagged squiggle of a mouth was probably the artist's attempt to depict Nashe's most prominent physical attribute, a projecting tooth.
