Andy Warhol 23x23 "Soup Can 11.47 (Onion with Beef Stock)" Silk Screen

About the item

"Soup Can 11.47 (Onion w/Beef Stock)" is a silk screen print on paper (open edition) from Sunday B Morning featuring the works of Andy Warhol. The piece is stamped in blue on the back with "Published by Sunday B. Morning" and "fill in your own signature" and is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity. Measures approximately 23" x 23". Andy Warhol (1928-1987) was the most successful and highly paid commercial illustrator in New York even before he began to make art destined for galleries. Nevertheless, his screen-printed images of Marilyn Monroe, soup cans, and sensational newspaper stories, quickly became synonymous with Pop art. Warhol emerged from the poverty and obscurity of an Eastern European immigrant family in Pittsburgh, to become a charismatic magnet for bohemian New York, and to ultimately find a place in the circles of High Society. Throughout the 1970s, Warhol frequently socialized with celebrities such as Jackie Kennedy Onassis and Truman Capote, both of whom had been important early subjects in his art. He started to receive dozens—and soon hundreds—of commissions for painted portraits from wealthy socialites, musicians and film stars. Celebrity portraits developed into a significant aspect of his career and a main source of income. He was a regular partygoer at Studio 54, the famous New York disco, along with celebrities such as fashion designer Halston, entertainer Liza Minnelli, and Bianca Jagger. In 1980s, Warhol collaborated with the young artists Jean-Michel Basquiat, Francesco Clemente, and Keith Haring. Warhol returned to painting with a brush for these artworks, briefly abandoning the silkscreen methods. His television shows, Andy Warhol’s T.V. and Andy Warhol’s Fifteen Minutes were broadcast on New York cable television and nationally on MTV. He created work for Saturday Night Live, appeared in an episode of The Love Boat and produced music videos for rock bands such as The Cars. Warhol was a prolific artist, and his elevation to the status of a popular icon represented a new kind of fame and celebrity for a fine artist.
