Andy Warhol painted Campbell’s Soup Box: Onion Mushroom over twenty years after he first appropriated the Campbell’s Soup imagery into his art in 1962. At this point in 1986, the Campbell’s brand had become synonymous with Warhol and his career. Some of the most widely recognized images of Andy Warhol’s work, his Campbell’s Soup prints represent a staple in American pop art. Campbell’s Soup Box: Onion Mushroom exemplifies Warhol’s cultural commentary on American commercial culture and questions what art is in an increasingly commercialized world.
