From April 25 – October 12, The Museum of Modern Art in New York City is running the exhibition Andy Warhol: Campbell’s Soup Cans and Other Works, 1953 – 1967. As you would expect, it focuses on the iconic painter’s work from the crucial years of his career from 1953 – 1967.

If you ever wondered where Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Cans paintings have ended up, it’s in MoMA’s collection and part of the exhibition. The 1962 series of 32 paintings is the centerpiece of the gallery, and for the first time since 1962 all 32 are shown in a line, rather than in a grid. This is similar to the way they were first showcased in Los Angeles. Also included in the exhibition are drawings and illustrated books the artist made at the start of his career as a commercial artist in the 1950s. MoMA is also showcasing other paintings and prints from the 1960s when Warhol was at the height of his career.
