Andy Warhol explored representations of the legendary Communist leader Mao Zedong of China in similar fashion to his famous renditions of Marilyn Monroe five years earlier. Warhol's famous portraits of Mao have become extremely collectible in recent years and this print is one of the most desireable colors, sizes and years of Warhols's series of silkscreen prints of Mao. Warhol was interested in comparing in the replication of the image as a commentary on the mass media invention of the Communist leader's image throughout China, as well as his "Little Red Book."
