Lot description
A strong example of Andy Warhol's various studies for his iconic Campbell's Soup Cans. In the center of the legal page, thin, immediate lines outline the individual can. Executed in 1985, "Duck Soup" epitomizes the tendency in Pop Art to merge everyday commercial items with high culture. Unlike the 1962 masterpiece, this drawing contains the unmechanized, sketchy mark of the artist's hand. These drawings were executed at the opening for Warhol’s exhibition at the Louisiana Museum, Copenhagen, circa 1985. A letter from the previous owner, Borge Bengtsson.
