Colorado State University Department of Art (USA)

In 1981, the Art Department at Colorado State University published a portrait by Warhol in order to gain funding for the university’s Visual Arts program. It is a portrait of Kimiko Powers, a famed pop art collector and a close friend of Warhol who, along with her husband, all visited Colorado State University together in 1981. The original print was made in 1972 on request of Kimiko’s husband John Powers who commissioned Warhol to make a painting of his wife. The Powers’ art collection was and is recognized as one of the most comprehensive private art collections in the world.
