She died of cancer and heart disease in Los Angeles, California and was interred in the Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery in Westwood, California. Brigid still suffers with obsessive-compulsive disorder, a theme that she often explores in her artwork. She was also the star of Our Miss Brooks, a sitcom which aired on both radio (1948 - 1952) and television (1952 - 1956). Brigid Berlin is also famous for her 'Tit Paintings' (1969) (artworks executed using the painter's bare breasts) and off-Broadway one-woman shows. She played in many movies, including Grease, in which she played the principal, and the secretary in Anatomy of a Murder. In 1975, Brigid Berlin began work for Andy Warhol's Interview magazine, a position that she held until well after Andy's death. Eve Arden (April 30, 1908–November 12, 1990) was an American actress born as Eunice Quedens in Mill Valley, California. The question of authorship looms large in valuing Warhol's paintings to this day.
Brigid enthuisastically followed this line when interviewed by Time. The prank led to a drop in the value of Warhol's work and both parties eventually retracted their statements. Berlin was complicit in one of Warhol's most infamous pranks when, in 1969, Warhol announced that all of his paintings were the work of Berlin. Selections from these tapes were later compiled to form the play Andy Warhol's Pork. Brigid was known for her obsessive taping and photographing of every day life.
She also appears in the Edie Sedgwick film Ciao! Manhattan and has recently been the subject of a documentary Pie in the Sky. Berlin appeared in many Andy Warhol films including The Chelsea Girls in which she famously injects herself while performing a monologue. These injections were readily available through the many 'Doctor Feelgood's'in New York and perfectly legal. After several years as a reluctant debutante and a failed marriage, Brigid Berlin met Andy Warhol in 1964 and quickly became a central member of his entourage. After moving to Hotel Chelsea, she took on the nickname Brigid Polk because of her habit of giving out 'pokes', injections of Vitamin B and amphetamines.
Her socialite mother, Honey Berlin, frequently worried about Brigid's weight and had amphetamines prescribed to faciltate weight control. As a child she regularly mixed with celebrities and the powerful. Brigid was born to socialite parents and a world of Manhattan privilige. Brigid Berlin (also known as Brigid Polk, born September 6, 1939) is an artist and former Warhol superstar.
