About

In what began as a 1964 commission for the Campbell Soup Company, Andy Warhol created this series of ‘portraits’ of an everyday item, the tomato soup label emblazoned with day glow colors onto canvas, which soon became irrefutable symbols of the Pop Art movement.

 

Warhol's simple technique, using the same silk screening method he mastered in the Flowers series which precedes the Colored Campbell’s Soup Cans, secured for Warhol, more than any other image of his creation, the preeminent post held throughout his career as a generation’s taste-maker and the American avant-garde artist. Further, it would be this technique which would characterize Warhol’s artistic oeuvre for the rest of his career, foreshadowing his extremely iconic imagery that followed.

 

Andy Warhol also created this image in 1965 as a color felt banner, co-published by Betsy Ross Flag and Banner Co., Inc. and Multiples, Inc., New York

This is an extraordinary museum quality impression of Campbell’s Soup Can (Tomato), 1968, an iconic Andy Warhol color screenprint that is not usually seen in such outstanding condition; the colors are particularly fresh and vibrant, the red superb. Most impressions are dull and seldom available in such outstanding condition. 


Andy Warhol Interview
Why did you start painting soup cans? “Because I used to drink it. I used to have the same lunch every day, for twenty years, I guess, the same thing over and over again. Someone said my life has dominated me; I liked that idea. I used to want to live at the Waldorf Towers and have soup and a sandwich, like that scene in the restaurant in Naked Lunch.” (Andy Warhol interviewed by G. Swanson, “What is Pop Art? Interviews with Eight Painters (Part I)”, Art News, New York, November, 1963).
