Campbell’sTomato Soup by Andy Warhol – 1968

We dedicate this Friday’s post to an icon: Andy Warhol.

Did you know how he displayed the paintings on his first one-person exhibition? Here it goes.

Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Cans transformed him into an overnight sensation when they were first exhibited in Los Angeles in 1962.

It was his first one-person exhibition organized by Irving Blum, the legendary and visionary director of the Ferus Gallery.

The exhibition featured thirty-two “portraits” of soup cans, each identical except for the flavor inscribed on their labels.

These revolutionary paintings were displayed on a small narrow shelf that ran along the wall of the gallery in a way that suggested not only a gallery rail but also the long shelves in a grocery store.

With these works, Warhol took on the tradition of still life painting, declaring a familiar household brand of packaged food a legitimate subject in the age of Post-War economic recovery.
