The Frick Collection

February 25, 2013

Dead men looking at the dead through dead eyes.

This paint encrusted cloth is the locus of the real, the plane where ghosts intersect

Title: “Portrait Of An Elderly Man”-

where is  your  vanity?

The paid artist, the drudge,  triumphed . There

is the name.

In a play of  four  parts

the painter, the painted,

this person upright and  seeing-

only  the varnished  artifact

breaths.
