Catalogue Note

The name of 'Henry' in the dedication refers to Henry Geldzahler, Belgian-born art critic, historian and curator. Geldzahler was an incredibly influential figure in the New York contemporary art scene throughout the 1960s to the 1980s, serving as a curator of 20th Century Art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, a United States Commissioner to the Venice Biennale and a Director of the visual arts program of the National Endowment for the Arts. The curator's advocacy of contemporary art led to his personal association with many of the New York art world's rising stars, including Andy Warhol, with whom Geldzahler formed a close friendship during the early 1960s.
