Lot description
Rate Authenticated Work. During the early '70s, when this work was made, Warhol did a number of prints for political campaigns. In 1972, he created "Vote McGovern" depicting a ghoulish Richard Nixon; in 1973 he created a black and white portrait of Mao. In 1976 he created Jimmy Carter I. This could very well have been intended as a political print, however there is a possibility it might have been intended for Warhol's exhibit at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington in 1975. Never editioned, so there are a limited number of prints that came from the Warhol Foundation. A timely subject for the presidential primaries and upcoming election.
