Campbell's Soup Cans,[1] which is sometimes referred to as 32 Campbell's Soup Cans,[2] is a work of art produced between November 1961 and March or April 1962[3] by Andy Warhol. It is made up of thirty-two canvases, each measuring 20 inches (51 cm) in height × 16 inches (41 cm). Each are of a painting of a Campbell's Soup can—one of each of the canned soup versions the company offered at the time.[1] It is one of the most important art pieces of pop art in the United States.
