In 1991, Carillon Importers, Ltd. - the sole U.S. distributor of Absolut Vodka - commissioned 51 artists to execute a "state portrait" that incorporated the iconic bottle. The successful campaign featured regional artists and ran in USA Today throughout 1992 and 1993. Each original painting was made available to collectors as a print in a limited edition run, raising money for AIDS research. Gatewood chose to portray "that big Carolina moon through the pines."

No apparent condition concerns; not examined out of frame.
