Andy Warhol, ‘Perrier’, 1983, EHC Fine Art

After Andy Warhol

In 1983, Warhol created over 40 works inspired by the classic and sophisticated design of Perrier's sparkling water bottle, including the design for this offset lithograph. Released in 2013 in association with the Andy Warhol Foundation, this print shows a trio of the classic bottles rendered in Warhol’s unmistakable palette and overlaid images. Commissioned in 1982 and completed in 1983, the advertising campaign was coordinated by Langelaan & Cerf of Paris and was awarded the Grand Prix de l’Affiche Française–the French Poster Grand Prix–that same year.

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.
