One man has a nice portrait in his library. When he was asked whom it represented, he replied:

Uncles and brothers
Have I none,
But that man's father
Is my father's son.

What relation was the subject of the portrait to that man?

Himself?

He's got no brothers and uncles, so it can't be his cousins and he is the only son of his father, right?
