Andy Warhol’s portrait of Philip Johnson hangs in the painting gallery | Andy at Philip Johnson’s Glass House, photo by David McCabe: “A photographer’s dream location. It’s a glass box with fantastic light and reflective surfaces. Philip was putting the last touches to the designs for the Lincoln Center or some other project. So as not to disturb him, but to get a shot with him and Andy, I came up with this photograph.”
