Andy Warhol Mao Xerox Progressions
Andy Warhol Mao, 1973 Xerox limited edition prints were published in collaboration with E.A.T. (Experiments in Art and Technology).
The Andy Warhol Unique Mao Xerox Print was one of thirty limited edition prints published as part of The New York Collection for Stockholm for the benefit of the Moderna Museum, Stockholm, Sweden.
To create the edition of 300 impressions numbered 1 through 300, Andy Warhol used a Mao drawing as the basis for the master impression. Andy Warhol then sequentially created the respective Unique Xerox print, each time enlarging and elongating the image approximately 1% to 2%. The result is lower edition numbers more closely resemble Mao, while higher edition numbers are more abstract.
Joseph K. Levene Fine Art, Ltd. has acquired a Set of 2 Unique Andy Warhol Mao Xerox prints, each hand signed by Andy Warhol and each numbered from the regular edition of 300 impressions.
