The original studies for the Africa Suite were a group of ten works selected from a series of ink-on-paper drawings from the same year. These large automatic brush drawings were reworked with white acrylic overpainting and white paper masking to achieve the silhouettes of the final screenprints. The original works were mounted onto a base sheet to determine the size of the print margins. The suite of prints was shown for the first time in 1970 at the Marlborough Gallery, New York, with the original drawings. A small number of impressions apart from the edition were signed but not numbered.
