Lot Details

The Sunday B. Morning series was published in an unlimited edition, enabling collectors to hang an entire set of 10 soup cans and experience the installation the way the soup can set was intended to be seen by Warhol: as a repetition of the same image in different variations. This was a very popular concept in the 1960s, inspired by the barrage of images constantly generated by the media.

Sunday B. Morning color screenprints are printed on museum board with the highest quality archival inks, after the original screenprints by Andy Warhol. They are stamped in blue ink, "Published by Sunday B. Morning" and "fill in your own signature," on verso. Published by Sunday B. Morning, these prints are of the highest quality and integrity.

Andy Warhol (1928-1987) is widely credited as one of the most significant artists of the 20th century. After studying design at the Carnegie Institute of Technology, Warhol moved to New York in 1949 to pursue a career as a commercial artist. Though successful, Warhol wanted to be an independent painter. In the early 1960s he began to create paintings based on advertising imagery. He established his own studio, The Factory, and developed his signature style, employing commercial silkscreening techniques to create identical, mass-produced images on canvas. With his multiple images of soup cans, soda bottles, dollar bills and celebrities, Warhol revealed the beauty within mass culture and redefined the art world.
