note:
“The more you look at the same exact thing, the more the meaning goes away, and the better and emptier you feel.” – Andy Warhol

In 1967, Andy Warhol established his own print-publishing business, aptly named ‘Factory Additions’ where he would subsequently print series featuring some of his most recognizable themes including Marilyn Monroe (Marilyn), Campbell’s Soup I and II and Flowers. The large format series of ten Marilyn Monroe prints was the first such series printed that same year, and the present work was created at Factory Additions to announce its release.
