The work was presented by Charles Slatkin Galleries in 1968 as part of the "American Tapestries" exhibition, in which the gallery invited a group of contemporary artists to submit designs for tapestries. Warhol gave this Marilyn design, which was hand woven into a woolen tapestry for the exhibition.
