1949 - aged about 26
An illustration to a short biography in the Classics Illustrated version of The Woman in White. Published by Gilberton, New York July 1949, it followed the 1946 comic version of The Moonstone by three years. Based apparently on the 1850 Millais portrait. Artist unknown, but possibly Alex A Blum who illustrated the story and cover.

Cover of the 1949 Classics Illustrated edition of The Woman in White. The comic was reissued later with an alternative cover but the same portrait of Wilkie Collins. The cover and illustrations throughout were by Alex A Blum. But the portrait may have been by someone else.
