This piece of art, Campbell’s Soup Cans, is made my Andy Warhol and was completed in 1962. Postmodernism, and more specifically postmodernism art, was a time period and art movement that came in reaction and perhaps in contrast to late modernity. In many ways, postmodernism intersects with modernism and shares many artistic components. Andy Warhol was one of the most famous postmodern artists, and this piece of art demonstrates many of the signature characteristics of postmodernism. It came in reaction to modernity and was essentially a criticism of all the things that were considered universal truths and facts in society. In addition, many of the pieces of art interacted with pop culture and media. This particular piece makes reference to the somewhat new consumer culture and that was taking over society at the time. With the improvements of technology came the ability to mass produce advertisements and spread them throughout society in different mediums. At the time this piece of art was made, Campbell’s soup made 32 different soup flavors, and each is depicted in this in a different square. Warhol is using irony in his art here to make fun of the advertisements of consumer culture and how it is starting to take over society.
