Additional Notes:

The 632 prints were divided as follows: 

40 portfolios containing four prints each, signed and numbered in pencil on verso.
472 prints were used by architects Johnson & Burgee for the Hotel Marquette, Minneapolis, Minnesota. In 1981, upon removal from the hotel, these prints were signed, numbered 1/470-470/470 and dated in pencil on verso, and two were marked HC. They were stamped in black on verso Hotel Marquette Prints.

Warhol was commissioned ca. 1966 by the de Menil family, collectors from Houston, Texas, to create a film of a sunset to be shown in the Rothko Chapel in Houston.  One of the stills from this film may be the source for these prints.
