Keys To The 20th Century

Weldon Kees.

Kees van Dongen.

Trying to fit the two.

One, a long-lived, successful fauviste and society portraitist, dead at 91 at home in Monte Carlo.

One, one of 'the disappeared', his car at one end of the Golden Gate bridge, his body never found, his poems rough and naturalistic in the 40s/50s loosely noirish, Beatnik way.

Life's still a puzzle.
