One of the defining images of Pop Art, the Campbell’s soup can featured in many works by Andy Warhol in the 1960s. The series explored the artist’s fascination with supermarket brands and advertising. This colourful and graphic 1965 design is a reproduction print presented with a window mount and an ash wood frame, arriving ready to wall mount. The frame is made of carefully selected North American ash wood from sustainably managed forests. The wood is consistent in colour and grain and the timber is milled in the UK and finished by hand. Black staining is applied, followed by a hand-polished coloured wax, creating a deep lustre. The window mount is extra thick for definition and acid-free to prevent discolouring over time. Andy Warhol was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in the USA in 1928 and after a successful career as a commercial illustrator, he became a renowned and sometimes controversial artist. He is regarded as one of the leading figures of the pop art movement and achieved a celebrity status beyond anything previously seen in the art world. In works that plundered the world of advertising, pop culture and celebrity, Warhol offered up iconic images in a comment on the banality of mass consumer culture – work that ironically made him famous in his own right. Working from his ‚ÄòFactory’ headquarters, Warhol cemented his lofty status by producing a prolific variety of art including drawings, screenprints, paintings, photographs, films and installations. Andy Warhol died in 1987, after somewhat over-extending his allotted 15 minutes of fame with an enduring legacy. Have you thought about hooks and fittings ?
