One of only 10-15 produced boxes from 1968. Not to be confused with the later posthomous Malmö Type from 1990 (105 boxes produced). Only 6 boxes from 1968 can be accounted for. This being one of them.

This Brillo Box is the very same box that is mentioned and depicted in Moderna Museets report to The Andy Warhol Art Authentication Board in November 2007.
Its the only known box that is signed A.W. (initialled) and this is also mentioned in the report. The AWAAB never publicly adressed the signed box.
This work has never before been brought to the open market. Its probably the best researched Brillo Box in the world and it comes with extensive material. Letters, documents, photos from 1968 etc.

Collection of Pontus Hultén 1968. Private collection Southern Sweden. The box was sendt to NYC to the Andy Warhol Art Autnentication Board. They used this very box in their process of authenticating other boxes. It comes with substantial and very interesting material on the process of authenticating works.
Hultens former wife Anna-Lena Wibom
in a radio interview aired by Sveriges Radio on April 15th 2012.. ”Andy was at our house. He was here He saw the boxes..

”Pontus had the boxes made with the permission of Andy. They needed to stabilize the towers of cardboard boxes. They only came a little later".....

About Andy Warhol

Obsessed with celebrity, consumer culture, and mechanical (re)production, Pop artist Andy Warhol created some of the most iconic images of the 20th century. As famous for his quips as for his art—he variously mused that “art is what you can get away with” and “everyone will be famous for 15 minutes”—Warhol drew widely from popular culture and everyday subject matter, creating works like his 32 Campbell's Soup Cans (1962), Brillo pad box sculptures, and portraits of Marilyn Monroe, using the medium of silk-screen printmaking to achieve his characteristic hard edges and flat areas of color. Known for his cultivation of celebrity, Factory studio (a radical social and creative melting pot), and avant-garde films like Chelsea Girls (1966), Warhol was also a mentor to artists like Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat. His Pop sensibility is now standard practice, taken up by major contemporary artists Richard Prince, Takashi Murakami, and Jeff Koons, among countless others.
