Medium: Screenprint on Strathmore Bristol Paper.
Size: 40″ x 30″
Edition: Edition of 150, 10 AP, 1 PP, signed and numbered in felt pen. Portfolio of 4. Andy Warhol created the print Muhammad Ali 180 as part of his Athletes series he created in the 1970s. In 1978, Warhol photographed Muhammed Ali for his Athletes series. Richard Weisman, who was both an art collector and a sports enthusiast, initiated 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.
