Campbells Soup Shopping Bag 4 and his collection of Campbell’s soup cans is arguably his most iconic and widely recognized series of artwork. In this collection, Warhol takes the ever-present American pantry staple and transforms it into high art. Warhol, originally a commercial graphic artist, found the imagery of the Campbell’s soup label a powerful visual tool, since the design had remained successfully unchanged for decades. This bag was created in 1964 for the “American Supermarket” Exhibition at the Bianchini Gallery.
