Mark Milroy Paints My Portrait

From Tether 1, page 107:

“People should wait to be famous before having their portraits painted. It’s only polite. Although in that case how does one account for certain memorable examples of the postwar era, including Fairfield Porter’s early portraits of poets James Schuyler and John Ashbery? They weren’t famous then. I suppose they wanted to be, which raises the question: Is it sheer vanity that motivates a sitter?”
