Consisting of thought provoking paintings, drawings, films and photographs, the repetition of which highlights the commodification of the popular symbols modernity holds valuable, Warhol’s work tore down the barriers of traditional art, becoming an icon in his own right.

ENGRAVINGS

The engravings of the Montblanc Great Characters Andy Warhol Special Edition range from Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Cans series from 1965 and the Dollar Sign series representing the relationship between pop culture and money. Also available is the brightly coloured Flowers series from 1964.
