  2. He may have married three times, but his 'true love' was art. It's the thread that holds the patchwork quilt of his entire remarkable life together. Reading these little essays is causing me to take a second look at how I've formerly perceived his life and influence. His legacy is all the richer, I believe, understanding how fiercely he embraced the arts.
