    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.
