Andy Warhol, American 1928-1987- ''Brillo Box''; mixed media marker on cardboard, signed in black marker pen, (box size ca. 16X13'5cm) Note: Andy Warhol's iconic 'Brillo Boxes', his first sculptural works, exhibited in 1964 at Stable Gallery in New York, raised questions about our accepted ideas about and definitions of ''high art'' using deadpan humor and pop culture imagery. He appropriated a consumer-minded product (literally, the actual cardboard boxes with Brillo pads still inside) and elevated them into the realm of fine art sculpture. Warhol's 'Brillo Boxes' took the mundane and transformed it into something thought-provoking, encouraging viewers to reassess the aesthetics found in commercialism, as well as re-evaluate their own ideas about the definition of art.Condition:Brillo box has some scuffing to corners, overall handled condition with some glue residue marks of old stickers, overall good condition.Shipping and removal of goods: Novartia offers IN-HOUSE shipping.
