Lot Details

Warhol was fascinated by Muhammad Ali for both his celebrity status and his physical prowess. This is a unique close-up of Muhammad Ali's lethal fist. A must for any Warhol/boxing aficionado. All paintings and prints of Ali by Warhol have commanded very high prices at auction, and will, in future years, be collectible not only for their artistic merit, but also their historical importance.
