Provenance: By subscription from the Inaugural Committee, 1976; Private Collection, Virginia.

Other Notes: Preserved in pristine condition with edges intact in the original folio.

In 1976 the Jimmy Carter campaign Inaugural Committee needed $150,000 to pay for cultural events and late museum hours during Inaugural Week. Tom Beard, aide to the Carter administration, commissioned the four artists included here to each produce a print based on the Inauguration. Each artist was paid $10,000 and the edition of 100 (originally sold for $2,500 each) sold out in advance, raising well over the needed funds.
