About Andy Warhol – Brillo Box Candle – Ligne Blanche

It is aimed to promote the visual arts and preserve the 20th-century influential artist Andy Warhol’s cultural legacy. As the preeminent American artist of the 20th century, Andy Warhol challenged the world to see art differently. Appropriating images from popular culture, Warhol created many paintings that remain icons of 20th-century art, such as his paintings of Campbell’s Soup Cans, Brillo Soap Boxes, and Marilyn Monroe. Warhol’s art was a mirror of his time, which is reflected in the mass media images he used in his art to confront aspects of American culture. Warhol said “If you want to know all about Ady Warhol, just look at the surface: of my paintings and films and me, and there I am. There’s nothing behind it.” While his work speaks eloquently of the concerns and issues of its moment, it also has a universality and conceptual power that transcends any particular period of artistic movement. The discovery of Kaolin during the 18th century in the French region near the city of Limoges, southwest of Paris rapidly made the city known for its unique porcelain production. The distinctiveness of Limoges porcelain products is also attributed to the unique mixture of minerals in addition to Kaolin found in this particular region, as well as the attention detail and high-quality standards demanded by expert craftsmen. Bearing the stamp “Limoges Porcelain” this Ligne Blanche exquisite Warhol Brillo Box Candle, attests to its uniqueness and high-quality porcelain.
