Lot Essay

‘And the guy from the hamburger place came by. I’m doing a portrait of a hamburger, Frank Fowler got me the job. I can’t remember the name. Not McDonalds, not Burger King, not Wendy’s, not Wetsons—something else’ (A. Warhol, quoted in P. Hackett (ed.), The Andy Warhol Diaries, New York 1989, p. 123).
