A prolific and innovative printmaker, Rauschenberg made his first editioned prints at Universal Limited Art Editions (ULAE) in 1962. His fruitful collaboration with Tatyana Grosman, the charismatic founder of ULAE, spanned two decades until her death in 1982. Even after her passing, Rauschenberg has continued to make prints at the legendary shop. This lithograph, which prominently features an image of Grosman, was made to commemorate ULAE's fifteenth anniversary in 1974.
