This unique original print on heavy weave paper is from a limited edition and not like the often offered unlimited prints from Andy Warhol with the note ",,published by Sunday B.

Quotation from the "Portraits of the 70s" Even when WARHOL leaves, from time to time , the jet-set world of art, business, fashion, the results are equally incisive. It is something of a miracle that a contemporary Western artist could seize, as WARHOL has, the Olympian Big Brother image of Mao Tse-tung. In a quartet of canvases huge enough to catch one's eye at the Worker' Stadium in Peking, WARHOL has located the chairman in some otherworldly blue heaven, a secular deity of staggering dimensions who calmly and omnipotently watches over us earthlings.
