Campbell's Soup, Warhol Wall Art
Andy Warhol often appropriated familiar images from consumer culture in his work, and his Campbell’s Soup Cans painting is perhaps the most famous example of this. The original series was made up of 32 canvases, with each depicting a different variety of soup offered by the company at the time. When Warhol first exhibited the piece in 1962, the canvases were displayed together on shelves like products in a grocery aisle. Each one is hand-painted, with a hand-stamped fleur-de-lys pattern on the bottom edge of the cans.
The Campbell’s Soup Cans series resembles the mass-produced printed advertisements of the era, and Warhol chose this particular product due to his passion for painting ordinary things, and his fondness of the soup itself. The painting was later sold to the Museum of Modern Art for upwards of $15 million after Warhol’s death. Warhol went on to produce a huge variety of works depicting Campbell's soup cans during his life.
A great image for framing behind glass, or block mounting on canvas to create a focal point and conversation piece in any art lover's home.
