SOUP’S ON AT THE ART GALLERY OF ONTARIO – AGO REVEALS ANDY WARHOL’S ‘CAMPBELL’S SOUP I’ SERIES

They had it all along. Philanthropists Jim and Margaret Fleck bought the series in the 1970‘s from The Factory, America’s epicentre of Pop Art. Understandably the work opened up a huge debate on what can be classified as art.

AGO Director and CEO, STEPHAN JOST, says this is the only complete series of Andy Warhol’s soup cans to be found in a public institution. Each piece of the 32 canvases is different, and Warhol’s errors makes them so close to art that they become art.
