Publisher's description: Born in New York in 1939, Brigid Berlin changed her name to Brigid Polk not long after she met Andy Warhol in 1964 and became one of his legendary muses. In 1970, she met Gerhard Richter in Munich, giving rise to the German artist's important Brigid Polk series. Based on Polaroid self-portraits by Polk, the series of photo paintings did more than capture this eccentric artist -- it created a fascinating dialogue between America and Europe, photography and painting, and artist and muse.
