    (September 6, 1939-July 17, 2020)
    Born in New York City, New York
    Warhol 'superstar,' artist and photographer
    Appeared in the films 'Chelsea Girls' (1966), 'Four Stars' (1967), 'The Loves on Ondine' (1967), 'Women in Revolt' (1971), 'Ciao! Manhattan' (1972), 'Andy Warhol's Bad' (1977), 'Serial Mom' (1994) and 'Pecker' (1998)
    Art works range from needlepoint pillows based on tabloid front pages to 'tit paintings' made by dipping her breasts into paint cans, then pressing them against canvas or paper to create a print
    Subject of the documentary 'Pie in the Sky: The Brigid Berlin Story' (1999)
    She said, 'My mother wanted me to be a slim, respectable socialite. Instead, I became an overweight troublemaker.'
    She was also known as Brigid Polk from her skill at administering 'pokes' of amphetamines to her fellow Warhol Factory regulars.
    She obsessively tapes and photographs her every day life.
    After creating several tit paintings publicly, she said it was 'totally not about nudity. This is about, you know, art.'
    She was introduced to amphetamines at age 11 by the family doctor.
    Her socialite mother complained about having a fat daughter, saying 'Imagine what is like for me walking down the street with you.'
    She played along with a Warhol prank where he told 'Time' that she was the actual creator of his paintings (1969).
    One of the tapes she made became the Velvet Underground album 'Live at Max's Kansas City.'
    John Waters said, 'I think that she's the most un-self-conscious nude person. She has great self-esteem for a fat girl.'
