U.N. Stamp 185 by Andy Warhol was commissioned by the World Federation of United Nations Association, a global organization whose goal is to support the principles and the purposes of the United Nations. For over two decades, they raised money for the United Nations through the sale of artworks to promote the ideals of the U.N. and raise money for their educational programs. Along with famous artists such as Picasso, Al Hirschfeld and Salvador Dali, Warhol created the U.N. Stamp lithograph based off of a first-day cover of an actual U.N. stamp.
