Andy Warhol created his iconic Campbell’s Soup II portfolio in 1969, once again taking the image of the American pantry staple and transforming it into high art. The collection of ten screenprints is based on his 1962 exhibition at the Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles when he first exhibited his Campbell’s Soup paintings. Warhol and his soup cans ushered in the Pop Art movement, and they are still some of the most iconic and recognizable of his works. Each print is different with a different Campbell’s Soup label, and the portfolio consists of the following: Old Fashioned Vegetable Soup, Scotch Broth Soup, Vegetarian Vegetable Soup, New England Clam Chowder Soup, Chicken ‘N Dumplings Soup, Hot Dog Bean Soup, Oyster Stew Soup, Tomato-Beef Noodle Soup, Golden Mushroom Soup, and Cheddar Cheese Soup. The Campbell’s Soup II portfolio was printed in 1969 by Salvatore Silkscreen Co., Inc., New York. It is very rare to find a complete set of these iconic prints with matching edition numbers. Andy Warhol’s portfolio Campbell’s Soup II is in excellent condition and comes framed to museum standards.
