It was part of Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art collection from the late 70s to 1994. After the revolution in 1979 it could not be shown because of strict rules set by the government about the visual arts and what they depict. In November 2006, it was sold by David Geffen to Steven Cohen for $137.5 million.
