These prints are based on paintings of Campbell’s soup cans that Warhol exhibited in 1962 at the Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles, an exhibition that hastened a radical break with the past. The paintings were lined up on a shelf around the room like cans arranged in a grocery store aisle. Warhol used ubiquitous products, including Coca-Cola bottles and Brillo boxes, to convey his belief in the democratic appeal of American consumerism. His Campbell’s Soup cans and Marilyn Monroe portraits quickly became his signature works in a new movement dubbed Pop Art.
