    Pre-Lot Text

    "I was trying to do these to actually read into them and write about them, but I never really had the time to do that. So I was going to hire somebody to read into them, to pretend that it was me, so that they'd be a little more ...interesting. Because all I would see would be a dog's face or something like a tree or a bird or a flower. Somebody else could see a lot more."
    (Andy Warhol as quoted in A. Warhol, America, New York, 1985, pp.126-129)
