EXHIBITED
Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto, Andy Warhol, July 21 – October 24, 2021, same image


The Vancouver art dealer Frans Wynans asked Warhol to create this screenprint of Wayne Gretzky to help promote Canada's art market abroad. Despite Warhol not being a hockey enthusiast, he thought that Gretzky transcended the sport, saying "He's more than a hockey player, he's an entertainer." Gretzky, who admired Warhol and collected his works, happily posed for the portrait.

The catalogue raisonné states that there are 300 prints in the edition, 50 AP, 6 PP which are trial proof variations, signed and numbered in pencil lower left. Some prints are also signed by Wayne Gretzky. There are 46 TP signed and numbered in pencil on verso by the executor of The Estate of Andy Warhol on a stamped certificate of authenticity.
