Christopher Marlowe - unknown artist

Christopher Marlowe - unknown artist

according to wikipedia:

A portrait, supposedly of Christopher Marlowe. There is in fact no evidence that the anonymous sitter is Marlowe, but the clues do point in that direction. Marlowe was 21 years old in 1585, when the painting was made. He was also the only 21-year old student at Corpus Christi, where the painting was later found.

[and it bears a strong resemblance to a known portrait of Marlowe by Grafton]

The latin motto translates to "That which nourishes me destroys me."
