Country of context



Andy Warhol (1928–1987) was a key figure from the early 1960s in the Pop Art movement that emerged in America. He took his themes from the familiar, the famous and the everyday. Well-known icons were a favourite – Marilyn Monroe, Elvis, Chairman Mao, Muhammad Ali and Mick Jagger all appeared in his art. So too the ever-present products in daily life, such as the humble can of Campbell’s soup (which the artist had eaten for lunch). Warhol also frequently borrowed from sources such as the photographs in sensational tabloids or pulp magazines. [Gallery media, 2003].
