When asked why he chose to paint Campbell’s soup cans, Warhol offered a deadpan reply: “I used to have the same lunch every day, for twenty years, I guess, the same thing over and over again.”
That daily meal is the subject of this work consisting of thirty-two canvases—one for each of the flavours then sold by Campbell’s—using a combination of projection, tracing, painting, and stamping.
Andy Warhol's Campbell's Soup Cans are perhaps the most well-known images of American modern art.
Initially created as a series of thirty two canvases in 1962, the soup cans gained international acclaim as a breakthrough in Pop Art.
Obsessed with celebrity, consumer culture, and mechanical reproduction, Pop artist Andy Warhol created some of the most iconic images of the 20th century.
