Hello All,

I am trying to identify a painting of Milton dictating Paradise Lost 
to his daughters. The image has Milton in the center of the painting 
surrounded by his three adoring progeny, one of whom is taking 
Milton's dictation. There is a landscape visible in the window, and 
Milton's foot rests on a stool. Here is the URL for the image:

And if anyone knows of any other images of Milton composing "Paradise 
Lost" (other than the ones by Fuseli and Dixon), I would be grateful.
