Mao at the Met

Andy Warhol's iconic portrait of Chairman Mao Zedong at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Although the size and power of the piece largely prompted the photo, the Chinese tourist standing transfixed in front of it may also have had something to do with my taking this picture. [NOTE: Mao, 1973, acrylic and silkscreen on canvas, Accession Number: 1977.226.9].

You are leaving out basic information about works of art when omitting the specific dimensions--especially when the work's size is mentioned in your text as being instrumental.
