He made his first Pop paintings, which were based on comics and ads, in 1961. The following year marked the beginning of Warhol’s celebrity. He debuted his famous Campbell’s Soup Can series, which caused a sensation in the art world. Shortly thereafter he began a large sequence of movie star portraits, including Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley, and Elizabeth Taylor. Warhol was a prolific artist, producing numerous paintings, prints, photographs, and drawings through the 70’s and 80’s.
