Press Release

Andy Warhol

Colored Campbell's Soup Cans
April 21 - June 11, 2011

L&M Arts is proud to exhibit twelve paintings from Andy Warhol’s series of Colored Campbell’s Soup Cans. In 1965, Warhol executed the iconic Tomato Soup can in twenty unique color combinations, such as orange, purple, and kelly green as well as tan, blue, and red. In doing so he made each of these large-format, silkscreened paintings its own aesthetic and quintessentially Warholian “variety.”

 

In the nearly half-century since their creation, this series of paintings has never been the exclusive subject of an exhibition. This long overdue project would not be possible without the enthuasim and support of the private and institutional lenders, among them The Menil Collection and The Milwaukee Art Museum.

 

To accompany this exhibition, L&M Arts has published a fully illustrated catalogue featuring all twenty paintings in the series as well as an essay by renowned Warhol scholar Dr. Rainer Crone and his co-author Wouter Wirth.
