State I (II.242) was originally printed in 1980 in an edition of 150; 100 prints from this edition were reprinted with rayon flock in 1983 and became state II (II.243) and state III (II.244).  This is the only time Warhol used rayon flock in screenprints.

There is at least one trial proof in the edition on Arches Cover Black paper.

Warhol made paintings of this subject.
