Portrait painting depicting a profile of Ezra Pound in blue paint and pencil on an unglazed ceramic tile manufactured by the Robertson Art Tile Company, created by Sheri Martinelli at Saint Elizabeths Hospital, Washington, D.C., 1957. The tile was originally a gift from Martinelli to Herman Alexander Sieber upon the release of Pound from the hospital in 1958. Sieber, a research assistant in the Senior Specialists Division of the Library of Congress, had written a report about Pound for the Legislative Reference Service of the Library of Congress that played a role Pound's release from the psychiatric hospital. A letter signed by Sieber to Clifford Daniel Graubart, written in Atlanta in 1987, accompanies the tile and provides its context.
