Marilyn by Andy Warhol – Limited Edition
About The Artist
Andy Warhol started is career as a successful commercial illustrator and this early work formed his interest in manipulating popular images. He was also fascinated with fame and was enchanted by Marilyn Monroe. Shortly after her death he set out to pay tribute to her with his Marilyn edition prints. The Campbell’s Soup Cans and Flowers followed shortly after. The 60s were groundbreaking years in Warhol’s career. It was a time when he developed his signature style and today, the works from this period are considered his most important and are highly sought after.
Andy Warhol’s Marilyn and Flower prints are 36” x 36”. They are hand pulled screenprints on heavy paper and the inks bleed to the edge with no borders. They are limited edition prints (editions of 250) published in the 60s and are often referred to as the “Factory Editions”. Since Warhol was still perfecting his printing techniques at that time, it’s hard to find one of these prints without some sort of a condition issue. Poor paper quality, using too much ink, and simply old age, all contribute to the rarity of finding these prints in excellent condition today. And get ready to open your wallet wide because a single Andy Warhol, Marilyn edition print can command well over a hundred thousand dollars, even in poor condition. The importance of these iconic impressions to the Pop Art movement cannot be overstated.
Andy Warhol once said Campbell’s Soup Cans were his favourite creation. He said of Campbell’s Tomato Soup, “I used to drink it. I used to have the same lunch every day, for 20 years, I guess, the same thing over and over again.” His earlier work in advertising inspired him, and the Campbell’s Soup Cans in particular, symbolised mass-produced, print advertising.
