‘Though probably best known in New York social circles as a legendary architect's publicity-shy éminence grise, Mr. Whitney was a force of his own in the contemporary art world, where he organized exhibitions at the Whitney Museum of American Art of works by Cy Twombly, Jasper Johns and Andy Warhol, a close friend who made frequent references to Mr. Whitney in his famous diaries. In the 1980's Mr. Whitney also championed younger artists like Michael Heizer, Eric Fischl and David Salle, for whom he arranged midcareer retrospectives at the Whitney. (Mr. Whitney was not related to the family that founded the Whitney Museum.) As recently as last year, he organized a critically praised survey of Willem de Kooning's paintings at the Gagosian Gallery in Chelsea.’ The New York Times
'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
