Andy Warhol, the leading figure of the 1960s Pop Art movement, is now one of the most acclaimed figures of the 20th century. He was a highly skilled multidisciplinary artist, debuting as a commercial illustrator, who originated controversial and necessary conversations on the value of fine versus commercial art. Warhol was a pop culture lover, obsessed with consumer goods, celebrities and advertising, using every day subject matter to depict a portrait of the America of his time.
His Campbell's soup cans series are one of his most iconic series of works, already part of our cultural imagery. Oyster Stew belongs to these distinguished series where Warhol, using a semi-mechanized process that resonated with post-war’s mass consumption, created a wide array of soup cans in multiple color compositions. Starting with hand-painted versions, he moved to the commercial technique of silk screening in 1968 with the intention to achieve greater consistency in his work, revolutionizing the concept and process of art-making.
