‘Oh, he’s so fabulous, wait until you see his house’ Andy told us. ‘It’s been in all the magazines.’ The Glass House! You know, the Glass House, Philip Johnson’ Glass House. ‘It’s holding an opera house on Sunday,’ he said, as if it had a life of its own. An icon of modernism-and its creator, Philip Johnson, had invited us (or Andy said).’ David Dalton
'The Glass House is an intellectual and artistic gathering place where the work of men who profoundly shaped 20th-century artistic culture was collected, exhibited, and performed: architect Philip Johnson and his long-time partner, curator/collector David Whitney; composer John Cage; choreographer Merce Cunningham; ballet impresario Lincoln Kirstein; and artists Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, and Andy Warhol. In the 1960s, the building was truly unique and was a marvel of architecture. For David, the vast amount of natural light allowed him to get shots that are almost impossible to get anywhere else.' The Glass House
'In 1964, David McCabe landed the commission of a lifetime, he just didn’t know it yet. A then-relatively unknown artist and illustrator named Andy Warhol was looking for a photographer he felt comfortable with to follow him for a year. The job fell to 24-year-old McCabe, an ex-arts student and photographer from Leicester, England. McCabe had recently moved to New York City at the encouragement – and funding – of his employer back home. McCabe’s own studio was a short walk from the now-infamous Silver Factory at 231 E 47th Street. Warhol, who had possibly seen the amateur’s images in magazines such as LIFE and Mademoiselle, liked his style – but McCabe was asking: ‘Who is Andy Warhol?’ Ashleigh Kane for Dazed
