Cooking with the Collection: Alex Katz and Andy Warhol

Warhol:

“I’ll buy a huge piece of meat, cook it up for dinner, and then right before it’s done I’ll break down and have what I wanted for dinner in the first place — bread and jam,” the artist wrote. “I’m only kidding myself when I go through the motions of cooking protein: all I ever really want is sugar.…People expect you to eat protein and you do so they won’t talk.”

Katz:

“you didn’t ask for food in my house, and you didn’t comment on it. You ate it or you didn’t.” source
