An edition of this print is part of the De Young / Legion of Honor (San Francisco) collection (asset #2005.6)

This print was part of a portfolio of ten prints by ten different artists produced by Gemini (GEL) as a benefit for a Kerry-Edwards political action committee. The portfolio  included this image by Serra, but in much reduced dimensions and with the inscription and much of the smudgy background eliminated. 

This particular work was based on a photograph of a tortured prisoner from Abu Ghraib in Iraq. Serra's work is resolutely abstract; that the political imperative of the moment moved him to figuration makes this print especially interesting.
