The Catalog Raisonné Feldman & Schellmann indicates
that the printing was done on commission.
During the early 1970s Warhol made a certain number
of works for political campaigns: 'Vote McGovern' depicting a macabre Richard Nixon, one of Mao's portraits in black and white, Jimmy Carter I and many others.
Screen printing can be considered a political print and
it is possible that it was intended for the Warhol exhibition at the 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 Washington Post Magazine cover.
