Anyone know who Portrait(He Knew) by Kansas happens to be about?

It's been driving me mad for weeks now since my Dad just got a Kansas box set-like thing for Christmas. But it's just so hard to find information about the band these days.It seems the only songs anyone knows anything about are Dust in the Wind and Carry on Wayward Son.

Anywho--it rather sounds like it's about an artist or scientist of some kind from the lyrics.It might not be about anyone at all,but if anyone can tell me for sure,it would be much appreciated.(:

And in case the lyrics are needed for some reason:

He had a thousand ideas, you might have heard his name

He lived alone with his vision

Not looking for fortune or fame

Never said too much to speak of

He was off on another plane

The words that he said were a mystery

Nobody's sure he was sane

But he knew, he knew more than me or you

No one could see his view, Oh where was he going to

He was in search of an answer

The nature of what we are

He was trying to do it a new way

He was bright as a star

But nobody understood him

"His numbers are not the way"

He's lost in the deepest enigma

Which no one's unraveled today

But he knew, he knew more than me or you

No one could see his view, Oh where was he going to

And he tried, but before he could tell us he died

When he left us the people cried,

Oh where was he going to?

He had a different idea

A glimpse of the master plan

He could see into the future

A true visionary man

But there's something he never told us

It died when he went away

If only he could have been with us

No telling what he might say

But he knew, he knew more than me or you

No one could see his view

Oh, where was he going to

But he knew, you could tell by the picture he drew

It was totally something new,

Oh where was he going to?
