A Fan Letter from Campbell’s Soup to Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol adored Campbell’s Soup. That much is obvious. In fact, his mother’s pastime of cutting tin cans into flowers inspired his iconic soup can paintings. But if you ever wondered how Campbell’s felt about Warhol, today is your lucky day. A 1964 fan letter (which accompanied “a couple of cases” of tomato soup) from the company’s Product Marketing Manager to Warhol is after the jump.
