Andy Warhol created his iconic Campbell’s Soup II portfolio in 1969, once again taking the image of the American pantry staple and transforming it into high art. The collection of ten screenprints is based on his 1962 exhibition at the Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles when he first exhibited his Campbell’s Soup paintings. Warhol and his soup cans ushered in the Pop Art movement, and they are still some of the most iconic and recognizable of his works. Each print is different with a different Campbell’s Soup label, and the portfolio consists of the following: Old Fashioned Vegetable Soup, Scotch Broth Soup, Vegetarian Vegetable Soup, New England Clam Chowder Soup, Chicken ‘N Dumplings Soup, Hot Dog Bean Soup, Oyster Stew Soup, Tomato-Beef Noodle Soup, Golden Mushroom Soup, and Cheddar Cheese Soup.
The Campbell’s Soup II portfolio was printed in 1969 by Salvatore Silkscreen Co., Inc., New York. It is very rare to find a complete set of these iconic prints with matching edition numbers. Andy Warhol’s portfolio Campbell’s Soup II is in excellent condition and comes framed to museum standards. Please enjoy the photos of the portfolio displayed at our recent exhibition Andy Warhol: Revisited.

Signature: Signed and numbered in ballpoint pen, numbered with a rubber stamp on verso.

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.
