“…The modern viewer must remember that prior to the 1960s, soulmark portraits were the ultimate in taboo. But one can see how an artist like Captain Rogers would feel compelled to pick up his sketchbook…
...Captain Rogers never did a self-portrait; we can only speculate who his soulmate — or soulmates — might have been."
