Comment(s): This rare letterpress print was published as part of the Warhol portfolio of eight prints which was included in the publication/portfolio "Artists & Photographs" published by Multiples, Inc., New York City, in association with Colorcraft Inc., NYC in 1970. The publication consists of a cardboard box containing artist's publications, multiples, artist's books, etc. by Warhol, Rauschenberg, Ruscha, Nauman, Gormley, Christo, Lewitt, and others. The stated edition size was 1,200 but as Peter Gidal indicates "…rumors abound that the art-box never got made in more than 800 copies, but even the origination gallery can no longer verify it. What is certain is that no "extra" copies of any of the multiples were made, and that the Gormley was in an edition of 200 and the Rauschenberg in an edition of 400. This substantiated the fact that complete boxes could never have been more than 200." Warhol's contributions were printed in different sizes, scales, and mediums. Our example is stamped verso "File Copy - Colorcraft Inc. - Please Return" indicating that it came from the Colorcraft archives. No auction records located.
