If you're planning on stocking up on tomato soup in the next few weeks, you'll be able to bring home a little bit of Andy Warhol to your pantry.
Campbell's said Wednesday that a new limited-edition line of Warhol-themed condensed tomato soup cans will go on sale starting Sept. 2 at most Target stores across the country. The cans, priced at 75 cents each, are intended to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the pop artist's first paintings of the familiar soup cans.
The soup will come in a variety of intensely colored cans meant to mimic Warhol's pop-art style. The artist exhibited his soup-can paintings at the Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles in 1962, and they became one of his signature works.
Campbell's said the new cans are being sold in partnership with the Andy Warhol Foundation, which controls the licensing of the artist's name and images.
