'Pop Icons' Exhibition Catalogue, Restelliartco Gallery, Rome, January 20 - February 6, 2015, authorized by 'The Andy Warhol Foundation for Visual Arts, Inc.' by SIAE 2015

The Catalogue Raisonné Feldman & Schellmann states that the press was commissioned.
During the early ‘70s Warhol made a number of works for political campaigns: 'Vote McGovern' illustrating a macabre Richard Nixon, one of Mao's black and white portraits, Jimmy Carter I and many others.
The serigraph can be considered a political print and it is possible that it was intended for the Warhol exhibition at Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington in 1975.
There are a limited number of versions from the Warhol Foundation including a 1983 edition for the cover of the Washington Post Magazine
