Andy Warhol, ‘Chanel FS (II.354)’, 1985, Revolver Gallery

Chanel 354 is a part of Warhol’s ADS Series. The Warhol Chanel No. 5 bottle illustrates the bottle’s sleek design, using minimal colors, only to accent the bottle’s contours and label. With only 190 editions in existence, Warhol’s Chanel prints are highly sought after and exceptionally rare in the art market. The Chanel No. 5 bottle is one out of the ADS series that is especially close to Warhol’s past as an ad illustrator. The Chanel bottle continues to be seen as a quintessential image of female consumerism and glamour.

Signature: Signed and numbered edition of 190.

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.
