My favorite is Mihaly Munkacsy's "Blind Milton dictating'Paradise Lost' to his daughters" (or just "Milton", oil on canvas,1877-1878) which can be found at either the Hungarian National Galleryin Budapest or the Public Library in New York (or so I understand from this source - <http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.artunframed.com/images/Monet55/munkacsy109.jpg&imgrefurl=http://answers.google.com/answers/threadview%3Fid%3D17627&h=605&w=800&sz=81&hl=en&start=15&sig2=rQa0nLG7bT62bGprAUlzkA&tbnid=LdvoC8-48LT73M:&tbnh=108&tbnw=143&ei=D0yjR6GAOKPgeKyK2PAC&prev=/images%3Fq%3DMih%25C3%25A1ly%2BMunk%25C3%25A1csy%2BMilton%26gbv%3D2%26hl%3Den%26sa%3DG>).
This picture has served as my wallpaper for quite a few years now.
