We began examining the picture on the wall thinking that perhaps it was Hemingway. But an enlargement blew us away! It appears that the painted photo on the wall is a depiction of Francis J. Quirk with a signed dedication. It appears that Francis J. Quirk is one of few artists with a self-portrait and a portrait in the National Portrait Gallery.

This reminds one of perhaps the world's most famous self-portrait within a portrait Velasquez' Las Meninas, which was painted in 1656. Velasquez is standing at left.
