Campbell's Soup Cans

There is something about the iconic Andy Warhol Campbell’s Soup artwork that I have always loved. 

From Wikipedia:
Campbell's Soup Cans, which is sometimes referred to as 32 Campell's Soup Cans, is a work produced in 1962 by Andy Warhol.  It consists of thirty-two canvases, each measuring 20 inches in height x 16 inches in width and each consisting of a painting of a Campbell's Soup can- one of each of the canned soup varieties that company offereed at the time.   The individual paintings were produced by a printmaking method- the semi-mechanized screen printing process, using a non- painterly style.   Campbell's Soup Cans' reliance on themes from popular culture helped to usher in pop ar as a major art movement in the USA.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Warhol’s work Campbell’s Soup has released a variety of intensely colored cans meant to mimic Warhol’s style.

As you can see from the photo, the cans have literally flown off the shelves.

I don’t really make it habit to eat canned soups, so it is doubtful that I will ever open these up in the future, but my own little collection sure will look sharp in my pantry and give a little bit of POP to the space.
