ca. 1984; Henry Geldzahler was the first curator of 20th century art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. In 1969, he curated a landmark exhibition called New York Painting and Sculpture: 1940-1970. He is known for having befriended the artists he worked with, such as Jasper Johns, Willem de Koonig, Andy Warhol, and, eventually, Jean-Michel Basquiat. Geldzahler and Basquiat first met in a restaurant when Basquiat tried to show the curator his early work. In an interview in 1983 for Interview Magazine, Basquiat said of the meeting, "I was selling these postcards, and somebody told me you [Geldzahler] had just gone into the restaurant. It took me about 15 minutes to get up the nerve to go in there. I went in and you said, 'Too young.' And I left."; - Pat Hackett, editor of The Warhol Diaries
