Lot Essay

Saturday, October 19, 1985
Ran into that artist Bill Katz who raved about the show of Jean Michel and me at Tony Shafrazi’s.
It was coming down this weekend. Jean Michel was getting all the good press, not me. And Tony’s not too happy, I guess he didn’t sell many. They were expensive—$40,000 or $50,000. It was too early, I think. I’m hanging on to my Piss paintings.
