Soup of the Day

H

I thought I would give Andy Warhol’s collection of soup an update… something the present day collage student could identify better with.  A can of Campbell’s soup cost 20 cents in 1962 (year of the painting) and a package of Top Romen costs the collage student 13 cents today (Still affordable).  However, Warhol sold individual soup paintings for $100 in 1962 while in 2006 a torn painting of Campbell’s soup (Pepper Pot) sold for $11,766,000… now that’s some high dollar pot.
