Montblanc - Montblanc Great Characters Andy Warhol Fountain pen
A pop icon during his lifetime and a cultural legend today, Andy Warhol redefined art with works that have become instantly recognized by audiences all over the world.
Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in 1928 to an Eastern European immigrant family, Andy Warhol made a sensation turning the ordinary into the extraordinary. With his provocative paintings, drawing, films and photographs, the legendary artist boldly defied the traditional assumptions of what art should be, breaking down the barriers between 'high art' and 'commercial art'. With the Montblanc Great Characters Andy Warhol Special Edition, Montblanc celebrates and honors the great artist's imprint on contemporary art and culture with a design that reflects some of his most famous works.
The Montblanc Great Characters Andy Warhol Special Edition Fountain pen features Andy Warhol’s most recognized Campbell’s Soup Can series. As the inspiration behind the design of the Andy Warhol Special Edition, this iconic image appears in a grouping of 4 cans engraved into the stainless steel cap. Both cap and cone resemble soup can lids. Warhol's masterful eye for color informs the choice of cobalt blue for the precious resin barrel and orange for the narrow rings on the cone and forepart, while the squeegee he used in silkscreen printing is captured in the design of the clip. In reference to his Dollar Signs series, a dollar sign is engraved on the handcrafted 14 karat gold nib of the fountain pen. Warhol's signature is engraved on the cap ring of the Montblanc Great Characters Andy Warhol Special Edition Fountain pen.
With every Great Characters Edition, Montblanc commemorates individuals who have broken new ground in the fields of culture, politics, science or the arts, and the impact of the legacy they have left behind.
The name Montblanc has always been associated with precious gifts and keepsakes that reflect the pinnacle of artisanal prowess and traditional craftsmanship.
