Catalogue Note

'When I did the first Warhol imitation, in the late 1960s, I was a young artist. I wanted to be a great painter. What better way to do that than to copy a great painting?'

Richard Pettibone, quoted in Brienne Walsh, 'Jesus Made Pettibone Mock His Idols', Art in America, 15th September 2011, online
