Andy Warhol created his print, Jimmy Carter II 151 in 1976 as one of two prints depicting Carter. He was commissioned by the Democratic National Committee to design a portrait for Jimmy Carter’s presidential campaign. By employing Warhol as the artist, Jimmy Carter hoped to reach out to the younger voters and the voters of New York, thus utilizing Warhol’s status as a pop culture icon to his advantage. This strategic move by the hopeful Democratic was an attempt to position himself as a progressive candidate. This portrait shows Jimmy Carter with a gleaming smile, perhaps to appeal to his voters. Warhol added his own touch by embellishing the print with rich red and blue and peach color for Jimmy’s face and hand.
