Warhol’s collection of Campbell’s soup cans is arguably his most 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. The soup cans were a legitimate subject as a modern ‘still life’ during the postwar American economy.

First shown at the Ferus Gallery (Los Angeles) in 1962, the show started as a series of paintings and established Warhol’s first solo exhibition as an overnight success. Furthermore, Warhol had just started to experiment with screenprinting that year, a medium that would change the art world forever.
