About

CAMPBELL’S SOUP II: HOT DOG BEAN 59 Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup II: Hot Dog Bean 59 is one of ten prints from his Campbell’s Soup II portfolio, which follows his first portfolio of Campbell’s Soup can imagery. In this collection, Warhol takes the ever-present American pantry staple and transforms it into high art simply by exactly mimicking the cans’ label. The second portfolio contains ten of the more unusual flavors from the original 32 that Warhol created in 1962, which were all real flavors of Campbell’s Soup cans. These ten prints are slightly more unique than those in the first print portfolio because of the more unusual flavors and added graphics on their labels, which make them visually stand out. CAMPBELL’S SOUP II: HOT DOG BEAN 59 AS PART OF ANDY WARHOL’S LARGER BODY OF WORK Warhol’s collection of prints representing Campbell’s Soup cans is arguably his most iconic and widely recognized series of artwork. The Campbell’s Soup portfolios represent many themes that Warhol continues to work with throughout his career, including the powerful role that mass consumption plays on postwar society. The semi-mechanized process he used to create his works is something that is characterized with Warhol. His Campbell’s Soup series helped to usher in the Pop Art movement that endures today, renewed and rediscovered by artists such as Damien Hirst and Jeff Koons.

About Andy Warhol (Artist)

The name of American artist Andy Warhol is all but synonymous with Pop art, the movement he helped shape in the 1960s. He is known for his clever appropriation of motifs and images from popular advertising and commercials, which he integrated into graphic, vibrant works that utilized mass-production technologies such as printmaking, photography and silkscreening. Later in his career, he expanded his oeuvre to include other forms of media, founding Interview magazine and producing fashion shoots and films on-site at the Factory, his world-famous studio in New York.


     Born and educated in in Pittsburgh, Warhol moved to New York City in 1949 and built a successful career as a commercial illustrator. Although he made whimsical drawings as a hobby during these years, his career as a fine artist began in the mid-1950s with ink-blot drawings and hand-drawn silkscreens. The 1955 lithograph You Can Lead a Shoe to Water illustrates how he incorporated in his artwork advertising styles and techniques, in this case shoe commercials.


     As a child, Warhol was often sick and spent much of his time in bed, where he would make sketches and put together collections of movie-star photographs. He described this period as formative in terms of his skills and interests. Indeed, Warhol remained obsessed with celebrities throughout his career, often producing series devoted to a famous face or an object from the popular culture, such as Chairman Mao or Campbell’s tomato soup. The1967 silkscreen Marilyn 25 embodies his love of bright color and famous subjects.


     Warhol was a prominent cultural figure in New York during the 1960s, ’70s and ’80s. The Factory was a gathering place for the era’s celebrities, writers, drag queens and fellow artists, and collaboration was common. To this day, Warhol remains one of the most important artists of the 20th century and continues to exert influence on contemporary creators.
