    I have to admit, Kevin, that you do make me laugh … this website sure would be a duller place without you … what entertainment you gave me last year, so a Happy New Year!In my rare sober interludes though, I do worry about your thought processes.

    And not realise he is talking about a political document

    I hear the cry across the wartime ghettos of Europe: Look, mate, all that weird modern art ain't nothing to do with us...we don't like it either.You really must stop taking things so literally. First lesson in GCSE literature - don't mix up the author with the protagonist. You shouldn't confuse the Francis that writes this stuff with me.

    all you folk who mix too much alcohol and internet browsing

    I've not touched a whiskey in ages...I did however catch the Marx Brothers' "Duck Soup" over Xmas, which reminded me of that great Warhol image, part of his series of 10 "Jews of the Twentieth Century".1217.jpgReports that the Warhol estate had unearthed a mysterious "eleventh man" have so far proved unfounded. But I hear his identity may soon be revealed.

    FIN.

    Not quite. I went to see the NPG competition and saw the Warhol as well. The other Nine were Franz Kafka, Gertrude Stein, Golda Meir, Sigmund Freud, Albert Einstein, Louis Brandeis, Sarah Bernhardt, Martin Buber and George Gershwin.

    Last word always goes to Robert.Can anyone confirm that this picture (shown in Carlton TV's programme 'Lenkiewicz: The Legacy' in 2002) is the centre panel of a triptych titled "Belsen" shown in 1982 during the Death Project? The door to the studio is seen at left for scale – presumably this was the centrepiece of the exhibition (No. 7 on the list).Triptych_Belsen.jpg

    Now the final twist (and hands up anyone who hadn't seen it coming apart from Kevin). Exclusively here on .org, the missing Warhol image from his series "Jews of the 20th Century" (the so-called 11th man) can now be shown for the first time:normal_98.jpgRoll those credits.

    Good to see a still image of this painting, thanks Jack. There is a better view in the 'Leaves were full of children' documentary.
