About

Circa 1990 England A cocktail lycra mini dress fully embroidered with red and black checkered sequins representing one of the most famous work of Andy Warhol, Campbell’s soup cans, created in 1962. Sleeveless low-cut neckline and backless, this tight dress is fully hand embroidered with sequins and matching glass beads. Red and black glitter for checkerboard parts, and rows of iridescent pearls and black, white, red and gold sequins for cans. Unlined dress, black woven label, pink printed Pink Soda graphics. Excellent condition of color and conservation. Dimensions: Equivalent French Size 36 Height 82 cm Shoulders 29 cm Collar 14 cm Back neckline 33 cm Chest 83 cm Waist 97 cm Hips 89 cm Pink Soda is a British brand created in 1983 that has often distorted and popularized the codes of fashion. While it is customary to say that Andy Wharol personnifies the American dream, a first Campbell's soup iconic paper dress, replica of the original work, was created at the initiative of the artist and the Campbell's Society in the United States in the 1960s. Not without humor, this late version in two-colored check pattern amplifies the codes of the original work of 1962, which fast-tracked Pop Art into a major artistic movement in the United States. By mixing creation with mass market, he upsets the ethics of Art, and in particular the Abstract Expressionism, by a provocative relation of the work to a primary consumerist notion. Exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the original work Campbell's Soup Can, is composed of thirty-two painted canvas some of which are owned by the trading company, achieving the perfect meeting of art and industry.

About Andy Warhol (Manufacturer)

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.
