The American Master Printer, Kenneth Tyler was keen to invite Andy Warhol to make prints at his Gemini GEL workshop in Los Angeles in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Unfortunately no long-lasting collaboration with Warhol was possible, but the artist did produce one print work at the workshop in support of the Democratic party’s presidential candidate George McGovern.
