Label from "Andy Warhol: Portraiture and the Business of Art", La Salle University Art Museum, April 10 – June 28, 2012:

Barbara Slater and her husband David B. Slater are contemporary art collectors based in Boston, Mass. It is possible that Warhol was referring to this couple in his
Diaries when he recorded a lesson about selling portraits:

I’ve redone the portrait of a lady from Boston.... I learned a lesson: I should never show a portrait when I
know it isn’t right. The first time around I knew I’d made her look like a horse, and still I showed it to them. And the thing is, this woman’s actually nice-looking, it’s just one of those people who photographs all the wrong way – all the bumps are in the wrong places. Like the bump of her nose just goes the complete wrong way in pictures, and it’s actually a perfect nose in life. But now they loved them, they took three. (July 10, 1985)
