Andy Warhol
The Last Return of the King of Pop Art So Far

17. May 2006 — 15. June 2006

Curator: Alexandra Kusá

Slovak National Gallery acquired a complete series of silk-screen prints of his Campbell's soup cans at the beginning of 2006.

Together with the succession of pictures of Marilyn Monroe, Campbell's soup can is his icon and the essence of Pop Art. The series was created in 1968, and the portfolio consists of ten works signed by the artist, all of them registered.
