It’s wonderful that the barb should be a barb. Am I remembering correctly that when that series of paintings [the original Diary series] was on the market, there were very few collectors who were interested in obtaining the diary entry that went along with the particular work?
Yes, I think something like seven out of the twenty-ﬁve [owners of the paintings] asked for the diary entry that inspired the work. Just like the barbed wire example, they didn’t want the real story behind it.
