“Andy was very naive, very innocent, but very determined. He was extremely ingenious about ingratiating himself. He would go to advertising agencies with a little bouquet and he would give each receptionist or secretary just a single flower in that wonderful mute way. Everybody else dressed in Brooks Brothers suits and carried beautiful leather portfolios, but Andy always came in ragged clothes, and he often carried his work in a brown paper bag. Everybody felt sorry for him.”
Andreas Brown, on Andy Warhol’s early days in New York.
