Essential Warhol

Obsessed with celebrity, consumer culture, and mechanical reproduction, 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 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 to create timeless works that have immortalized everything from Campbell’s Soup Cans to Marilyn Monroe. Below, celebrate Warhol’s enduring cultural appeal by browsing the icon’s most essential motifs—from early illustrations of cakes and shoes to genre-defining silkscreens of Mick Jagger and Mickey Mouse.
