Notes: 

Already one of the world's most prominent bankers, Pierpont Morgan was fifty-two years old when he sat for this portrait. Holl diverted attention from Morgan's skin condition, called rhinophyma, which reddened and inflamed his nose. The banker was so fond of the work he gave photographs of it to friends.
