Currently on exhibit at L & M Arts’ New York space is one of the most quintessential collections of Andy Warhol ever assembled together under one roof, namely a complete set of twelve Colored Campbell’s Soup Cans. Gathered from various private collections and institutions, the exhibition marks the first time the iconic series, a uniquely color complex spin off of Warhol’s original Tomato Soup design, has ever been shown together in it’s entirety. Created in 1965, the series exemplifies the signature Warholian multiple original production process he revolutionized – and left to his decedents – during this era, with each large-format, silkscreened painting created intrinsically the same, yet in aesthetically unique color connotations. To mark the significance of this reunion, a fully illustrated exhibition catalog has been produced by the gallery with an essay by renowned Warhol scholar Dr. Rainer Crone and his co-author Wouter Wirth.
