"MoMA moment: Andy's favorite soup" Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) Tip by Tijavi

 
 

This is as classic Americana as you can get. The soup cans are arranged in chronological order in which they were introduced to the market, with "tomato" having been first launched in the market in 1897. It was said that Warhol arranged the cans in no particular order when he first displayed these 32 individual canvasses.

It's amazing how an object of everyday living - in this case, Campbell's Soup - can be immortalized by one of Pop Art movement's most popular leading figures.

Fast forward today, the varieties of Campbell's Soup have expanded, and the grilled chicken and sausage gumbo is my favorite. It makes for a quick, convenient meal.
