Rake

Being such a rakish style of beard, one would think to find more examples of the famous Van Dyke. Alas, photographic examples have been notoriously difficult to come by. But we must thank the State of Ohio yet again for another fine gentleman with a fine beard.

Hello, I'm trying to find out about a particular style of beard, sorry this comment is about the Van Dyke you pictured.

The beard in question is a full beard, but parted mid-chin and swept back neatly toward the ears. I've seen other pictures of it, but can't find what it's called or when it was popular. Can you help me? Thanks!!
