Rosenthal Andy Warhol "Campbell's" Glass Square Plate
This wonderful square glass Andy Warhol for Rosenthal Campbell's glass tray/ collector hanging plate needs not further ado. The Campbell's image is one of Warhol's most coveted. This was originally done in a large edition in the 1980s from Rosenthal Studio Line in a few silk screen color palettes. This is ideal for art collector that dreams of hanging art designed by Warhol in home or power office. The colors are spectacular and more rich in person.
A well-known design adorns the most recent Andy Warhol collectors' series: The Campbell's soup tins. According to Warhol he was commissioned by an art dealer in 1961 to paint a picture of the thing that meant most to him. Using templates, Warhol then began producing images of coins and soup tins by the American company Campbell's ¿ an endeavour which was to pay for his meal tickets for many years to come.
Soup, anyone? Rosenthal's Andy Warhol line of high-end porcelain and glass giftware brings the artist's 1960s classic pop icons to renewed life. The Campbell's Soup collection adapts the primary colors and bold graphics of Warhol's soup cans onto functional everyday items such as this 8-1/2-inch square porcelain tray. Complete with the artist's signature, the colorful graphics completely saturate the top of the tray, the sides of which curve out slightly to give the not-quite-straight tray a playful look. The tray not only serves hors d'oeuvres or after-dinner mints, but may be used as a salad or dessert plate.
Rosenthal, one of Germany's most prestigious porcelain manufacturers, demonstrates an impressive interest in art and design and has collaborated for decades with well-known artists. Other Warhol gift collections by Rosenthal include Empire, which employs Warhol's black-and-white city photos, and Marilyn, based on his startlingly colored silk-screens of Marilyn Monroe. Each piece comes packaged in an Andy Warhol box and should be washed by hand. --Ann Bieri
