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. Last photo a letter dated 1994 from Björn Springfeldt (then Director of Moderna Museet) on Moderns Museets letterhead stating that Pontus Hulten had Brillo Boxes at least 20 years back (1968). Signed Björn Springfeldt.

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.

This very box is the box that was used in 1990 as a prototype to re-create the 1990 Malmö boxes. Documented via letters from Pontus Hulten to the screen printer Bengt Andersson in Malmö.

Described and depicted in the 2007 report from Moderns Museet to The Andy Warhol Art Authentication Board in 2007. The box is initialed A.W.

Pontus Hultén & Anna Lena Wibom, Bengt Andersson Malmö. Used in 1990 to re-produce the
105 Malmö types.

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.
