This oversized vintage Warhol exhibition poster was published on the occasion of the exhibition "Andy Warhol: 10 Statues of Liberty" at Galerie Lavignes-Bastille, Paris, 8 April - 30 May, 1986. The print was published in an edition of fewer than 500, and is considered especially collectible as it was a lifetime edition for an exhibition that Warhol attended. It was printed in 1986, the year before Warhol died. Warhol's renditions of the Statue of Liberty have been the inspiration in both subject matter and style of many subsequent generations of Pop artists, including Peter Max's ubiquitous Statues of Liberty. Warhol reprised his successful 1960s series based on Lady Liberty, with 10 of the large-scaled Camouflage Statue of Liberty paintings based on a close-up enlargement of the figure’s head. These later Liberty works commemorated the 100th anniversary of the gift of the statue from France to America, according to Warhol biographer Victor Bockris. Warhol traveled to Paris in March that same year for the debut of this body of work at Galerie Lavignes-Bastille.
