    Andy Warhol (American, 1928–1987). Red Jackie, 1964.

    Once upon a time, if I was at a party and Andy Warhol turned up, I knew I was in the right place. Beyond being lucky enough to be old enough (age is good for something) to have grown up with Pop Art and its exposure to appreciate Andy Warhol as the great leveler of pop culture and celebrity… those nights at Studio 54 didn’t hurt either to realize either that rubbing disco elbows with someone famous is no different…
