rutherford hayes - (n.) a work of art (a painting, drawing, sculpture, or whatever) which is obviously incomplete or which contains a rather obvious omission or mistake (from my 7-year-old daughter's reaction to the drawing of President Hayes on the Whitehouse for kids website. His eyes were missing).

e.g., Benjamin West's painting of the _Delegates to the Treaty of Paris_ is missing all the British delegates, who refused to be painted because of their mortification about the American Revolution, so it's a really bad Rutherford Hayes ... much as Bach's _Art of Fugue_ just stops in the middle---Rutherford Hayeses, both of them. And Percy Shelley's life, too, which ended when he was only 29.
