About Warhol
Andy Warhol (1928 - 1987)
Warhol is considered one of the founders of the pop art movement.  The pop art movement sees itself as opposed to elitist cultural art which is just about every kind of art except pop art.  Its subject matter is mundane cultural objects that emphasize the banal or kitschy aspects.  The most well known are Warhol's Campbell's Soup paintings.
    

     

Painted in 1962, there are 32 16" X 20", polymer paint on canvas, works, each representing a variety of Campbell's soups.
