Unique, Makes a terrific gift! Original hand signed drawing, done in black marker, titled "Campbell's Tomato Soup", dedicated to Carol, on the title page of Warhol's 1975 1st Edition hardback monograph "The Philosophy of Andy Warhol (from A to B & Back Again)". The drawing itself is in excellent condition - as is the book. (The external jacket is torn in upper right corner on the verso; dust jacket is torn is upper left corner of the backside; edges of dust jacket are slightly worn and creased from handling and use. No visble damage to binding. No visible marks on any pages. And none of this affects the exquisite Warhol drawing.)
The drawing can be removed from the book and framed by collector; it can be kept intact inside the book and framed with a shadow box or display; or it can simply be housed in collectors' rare book shelf or coffee table. Makes a fantastic gift !!

Acquired from a major US auction house.

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.
