Muhammad Ali 182 is part of Warhol’s Muhammad Ali portfolio he created made up of four different screenprints. In 1978, Warhol photographed Muhammad Ali for his Athletes series. Richard Weisman, both an art collector and a sports enthusiast, started the project which included athletes like soccer player, Pelé, and golfer, Jack Nicklaus. Even though Warhol wasn’t a fan of sports himself, he did see an interest in the realm of an athlete’s celebrity and fame. Ali proved to be a difficult subject, but Warhol managed to snap a few photos of him during a marathon session.
