Hotho's Sketch of Professor Hegel

I here reproduce, with permission, Canadian scholar Jim Devin's complete annotated translation of the portrait of Hegel by Heinrich Hotho (1802-73), his former student, friend and editor of Hegel's Lectures on Aesthetics. Above is the cover of a recent biography of Hotho by Elisabeth Ziemer covering his life as an art historian, critic and philosopher.
