In 1970, Warhol worked with Cowles Communications Company and the Los Angeles Museum of Art Art's and Technology Program to create Rain Machine. This striking and innovative installation incorporated a fountain and a wall of 30 Xographic (lenticular 3D) prints (as here) and was specifically created for the United States Pavilion at Expo '70 in Osaka, Japan.

Extensive documentation on the project is included with this work.

Lacking the publication stamp verso, sited in Christie's March 28, 2007, Lot 451, realized $12,956. The Christie's example lacked the exhibition history and provenance of the current unstamped example.
