Re­call­ing artist as a young man

Los Angeles Times - - CALENDAR - Eliz­a­beth Gins­burg Sher­man Oaks

Read­ing “It’s Not Just Any Brillo Box” [Aug. 7] brought back to me a mem­ory from 1949 when I worked in a book pub­lish­ing house in New York, where I met artists seek­ing work de­sign­ing book cov­ers. It was the pol­icy to have them wait in the outer of­fice un­til called. I re­call a 19- or 20-year-old Andy Warhol — with a sheaf of brown red hair across his fore­head and brown rimmed glasses — wait­ing pa­tiently for his turn. I would as­sure him his chance would come and he was very pa­tient.
