Ernie Wolfe© Lauren Greenfield
African art dealer Ernie Wolfe is a modern-day Ernest Hemingway. Renowned hunter and fisherman, he returns from the sea every so often with an enormous catch of lobsters, sea urchins, and ahi tuna. He cooks wild boar that he kills and hosts an eccentric group of artists, actors, and musicians for an incredible feast. Wolfe has introduced many well-known American artists such as Andy Warhol to his art which has in turn influenced theirs. According to dinner guest and music producer Don Was, "Ernie embodies the resistance to the feminization of men. There's one guy left you can say "I know this guy that hunts his food and eats it." He's a real man. He puts his body chemistry to its natural use."
