Synopsis: Everything that ought to be known about Robert Kelly can be found in his books, of which this is the fortieth.
From "The Court Painter":
How can I show you the truth of
anyone witout his face you ask?
The face is the last thing I paint,
& the least important.
It is there to trick the subject
into thinking he is one,
that he has been 'represented.'
But where he is is in a fold
of cape, shadow of a label,
wrinkle between elbow & those wide
gold stripes that tell how great he is
