Desert Gravure by Ed Ruscha
I acquire art much like I acquire design: it’s not a deeply analytical process. I respond instinctively to a work that I like and go for it, irrespective of the artist or provenance — you have to learn to trust your eye. - Muriel Brandolini
About the Curator
Designer Muriel Brandolini‘s unconventional approach to design has made her one of the most sought-after designers in New York. Her style and ideas are constantly being reinvented and consistently breaking away from the traditional. Descending from French, Vietnamese, and Venezuelan ancestors, her inspiration comes from her multi-cultural background and world travels. Her work has been profiled in Harper’s Bazaar, The World of Interiors, Vogue, Architectural Digest, Vanity Fair, and Elle Decor, among others.
Andy Warhol is celebrated for his silkscreen portraits of Marilyn, Elvis, Jackie and Liz; but his most iconic works—the one’s that made him a household name—are his 1962 paintings of 32 Campbell Soup Cans that are now in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Nearly every fan of contemporary art knows these paintings, but few fans of the artist’s extensive body of work are aware that he revisited the subject three years later with a group of nineteen Colored Campbell’s Soup Cans. However, in this series the featured cans are all tomato soup—Andy’s favorite!
