Andy Warhol met Muhammad Ali in 1977 while working on a photographic series based on famous athletes. The project was initiated by the sports enthusiast and art collector Richard Weisman, and this beautiful color screenprint portfolio soon followed. In the prints, the legendary boxer is depicted not only as strong, but also with a focused gaze evoking an almost regal sense of power.
