Story / Additional InfoPete Rose 360B was created the year that Pete Rose broke the all-time hits record. Commissioned by the Cincinnati Art Museum, Warhol created an 4 image, acrylic on canvas screen print that was based off a photo by Cincinnati photographer, Gordon Baer. True to Pop Art style, the screen print mimics the style of a classic baseball card. Warhol produced 50 impressions of color screen prints of one of the four images. He used colors that exemplified who Pete was‐a colorful character. Warhol died two years after this commission and Pete Rose was banned from baseball for placing illegal bets.
