Owned a large, framed, self-portrait painting he had commissioned of himself, in the 1930's. He is depicted as standing in a gray suit, one hand upon his hip, the other holding his coat and hat. This painting hung in his home until the day he died. It is now owned by Metallica's bassist, Kirk Hammett
, a hard-core horror movie fan and horror memorabilia collector.
