In the 1980s Warhol began to accept commissions for advertising work from a range of manufacturers and businesses. Many critics noted that he had essentially gone full-circle, returning to where he had started in the 1950s as a commercial illustrator. Yet Warhol maintained that he “was always a commercial artist”. This screenprint of the French mineral water Perrier was created for an advertising campaign in 1983. It features a black photographic print together with printed line-drawings of the bottle’s contours. The vibrant pink background contrasting with the areas of turquoise and the expressive lines create a vibrant poster. This design was awarded the Grand Prize of the French Poster in 1983.
