Why he claim at different times American and British birth? What was his real name? And why was he so desperately untruthful about these and other personal details? Here at last in a brilliant piece of research and a no less brilliant piece of storytelling the true lineaments of the man are uncovered from the repeated over paintings and my machines which he applied to his own self-portrait.
