Saltzman: 'I’m not an artist; I’m a painter'

Marvin Saltzman (b. 1931) and I have known each other more than 35 years.  We never met in the classroom, however; he was teaching studio and I was studying art history.  But since I have been writing about art, we have spent many hours discussing the state of art in general and his art in particular.
