Leo Steinberg approached us at Robert Rauschenberg's opening at the Metropolitan Museum on Monday night. "My friends sent me the piece you wrote about me, Charlie. They said I got off easy, that you devastate people." We turned to Alex Katz. "Alex, have you met Leo Steinberg?" Leo: "Actually, we've never met." Alex: "We once stood on the chow line together at Pierre Levai's, and Charlie's OK." It was that kind of night.
