Philip Matesic and I went to the Louvre to find “le Condottiere” by Antonello da Messina (1475).  Georges Perec found a resemblance of himself in this painting, they both have the same scar on their upper left lip.

Georges Perec often thought his father, whom he never met, had a slight resemblance to Franz Kafka. There is a specific family photo that bears the resemblance. Underneath you can see a photo of Franz Kafka juxtaposed next to a family photo with Perec’s father.

We tried to find painted portraits that looked like ourselves, in between the hundreds of painted faces on the walls of the Louvre, but were unsuccessful.
