CAMPBELLS SOUP II: SCOTCH BROTH SOUP FS II.55

This print, Scotch Broth, is from the second portfolio of Soup Can prints made by Andy Warhol, following on the heels of his Soup Can Painting show in Los Angeles in 1962. Each label, including all the lettering, was made by hand by the artist to mimic the actual Campbell’s Soup Can. In this impression the red is very fresh and the sheet is in excellent condition. The popularity of the Soup Can is enduring. An article is 2007 year’s New York Times observed that every day, a soup can is left on the grave of Andy Warhol.

CAMPBELLS SOUP II: SCOTCH BROTH SOUP FS II.55 AS PART OF ANDY WARHOL’S LARGER BODY OF WORK

Warhol’s collection of Campbell’s soup cans is arguably his most iconic and widely recognized series of artwork. In this collection, Warhol takes the ever-present American pantry staple and transforms it into high art. Warhol, originally a commercial graphic artist, found the imagery of the Campbell’s soup label a powerful visual tool, since the design had remained successfully unchanged for decades.Some of the most famous and recognizable images in art history, the Soup Cans by Andy Warhol helped to usher in the Pop Art movement that endures today, renewed and rediscovered by artists such as Damien Hirst and Jeff Koons.

Signature: Signed and numbered in ball point pen and 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.
