From the artist to Pat Hackett to the current owner.
Pat Hackett's contributions to Warhol's presence in the celebrity and art worlds today and in history are too significant to pass over. While Warhol had many assistants throughout his career, Hackett was one of his longest lasting. She worked for Warhol as his assistant and for two decades.
In those twenty years, she not only appeared in some of Warhol's works (see Pat Hackett with Banana, 1986), but she also helped Warhol claim the 60's as his decade as well as revealed to the public the inner workings of the genius behind Pop Art. In 1980, Hackett co-authored with Warhol Popism: The Warhol Sixties. The memoir covers Warhol's art and film work from throughout the decade, with anecdotes about celebrities and infamous regulars at The Factory. Additionally, Hackett was Warhol's Editor and published The Andy Warhol Diaries in 1989, two years after the artist's death.
Pat Hackett knew Warhol more intimately than many others because of the nature of her work with him. Ultimately, it is Hackett who is responsible for revealing to the world the man behind the artist as well as the life of this man.
