"With respect to Pop, I think that I wouldn't have been able to do a painting of a shoe or a perfume of that size or ahuge face that takes up the whole canvas, it would have seemed... I might not have dared to take that risk, what madness! But Pop has taught me that yes, you can do a huge face and that it works. Here there are a lot of things that I owe to Pop." - Manolo Valdes, 1996
