Andy Warhol's unforgettable images did not just reflect his soul; they reflected the culture around him. That's why he became known as "The Prince" or "The Pope" of Pop
-- an art movement that blossomed in the US in the late 1950s. By 1968, Warhol
had become a legend, producing thousands of images that turned popular everyday icons into popular works of art.
Nothing was too sacred, too morbid or too mundane for a Warhol work. From a can of Campbell's Soup (which he said he ate every day for lunch), Coke bottle tops, Brillo Soap Pads and Heinz Tomato Ketchup bottles to Elvis Presley
and Marilyn Monroe
and electric chairs, Warhol's unique subjects and vivid, bright colors, resulted in distinctive prints that are still very much admired and collected.
