Catalogue Note

"Andy Warhol is the most extreme of the Pop artists, and his shows are invariably more interesting as ideas...The result is that his exhibitions have the power of shocking and arousing indignation...There was a curious effect on the gallery; it became the storage room of an A&P. And the A&P became an art gallery—one found oneself avoiding the cartons as though they had suddenly become valuable."

Lawrence Campbell, "Andy Warhol," ARTnews, Vol. 63, No. 4, Summer 1964, p. 16
