    Brigid Polk (real name, Brigid Berlin, born 1939) is an artist, photographer, actress, and was a central figure of Andy Warhol's Factory (she even took part in his infamous prank when, in 1969, Warhol told the world that all of his paintings were actually by her - this led to a drastic drop in value of his artwork, and a retraction by both Warhol and her, but the question of authorship looms to this day). From the collection of I.D. "Nash" Flores III.

    What I most appreciated was how thorough you were when we initially met, how you were conservative in your estimates, not trying to get me to consign by giving false expectations, and then for delivering above and beyond on your commitment to me of a wonderful marketing campaign and a first rate catalog and photos, all of which resulted in a final total price realized that was nicely higher than what you had told me to expect.
