Gifts for Everyone: Art Lovers

11/28/2006 at 05:30 PM ET

Do you dream of being able to buy fine art for your friends, but can’t because of the astronomical prices? This season, art just became a lot more affordable, thanks to the folks at Barneys New York. They want to wish their customers a “Happy Andy Warhol-iday” by offering four limited-edition Campbell’s soup cans featuring authentic reproductions of Andy Warhol’s 1960’s labels. The tomato soup labels even include a replicated Warhol signature. Each colorful can retails for $12 or $48 for a complete set of four. Don’t worry, that gives you a whole year more to save for that priceless Warhol silkscreen!

Oh my gosh $12 for a can of Campbell’s soup? That is quite a bargain…UM. not really! I wouldn’t pay $12 for a can of soup. Not even the fact that they are “limited edition” makes me want to buy it.

what the heck?! If someone bought me a soup can for christmas i was be very disappointed.

amber on

oops i meant to say i would be disappointed

Well, I don’t know if I think that Barneys is doing us all such a great favour… I’m from Sweden, and those very “exclusive” limited-editon soup cans has been sold in your average grocery store for quite some time now, at the same price as the regular cans. So, uhm, would I pay 12 bucks? Not a chance; even though I do like the soup!

Well, unless you want to pay to have them shipped from Sweden, they’re still probably pretty limited-edition here in the States.

I think these are a great idea (assuming you buy it to look at, and not for the soup, which you can get cheaper). And Warhol’s representations are worth millions, so getting a piece of that for $12 is pretty good. And next time a Warhol moment comes around – and it will – they’ll be worth a lot more than $12. Except maybe in Sweden.

I think it is a good idea. May be I would buy them for myself. I will look at them and imagine, that I live in 1960’s…

regina on

i think the look great, but i rather donate 12 bucks to the welfare. they can buy more than one can of soup with the mo’

Andrea on

shoot. for that price i would make my own vintage looking sticker and rap it around the soup can myself. that’s a rip off.
