MONTBLANC Andy WARHOL 2015 Great Characters Artisan Limited Edition Fountain Pen LE 100. 18k 750 Medium (M) Gold Nib.
Long cap configuration (see Montblanc Picasso 91, Montblanc Marco Polo 69, Montblanc I PoA Moctezuma 87). 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 striking works, Andy Warhol broke down the barriers between high art and commercial art. He defied traditional assumptions about what art is and how art is made and forever changed the established criteria for what we define as art.Warhols images of trivial objects, whose provocative presentation make one forget their insignificance, are instantly recognised by art collectors and the general public all over the world, bringing phenomenal prices at art auctions. Andy Warhol achieved something only a very few artists have achieved: he not only became a legend within his lifetime, but also a contemporary cultural icon that continues to inspire us today. A solid gold skeletonised framework outlining each dollar sign covers the azure cap embellished with the colourful dollar sign pattern. Warhol's use of serial images inspired the unusual design of the Andy Warhol Limited Edition 100, where his bold dollar sign images are repeated in a style reminiscent of Warhol's work. Moreover, in a reference to Warhol's theme of commodity culture, the cone is embellished with his barcode, while the cap and the cone subtly recreate W's famous Campell's soup can lids.
Warhol's signature engraved on the cap ring and his portrait engraved on the 750 gold nib pay tribute to the man honoured in this extraordinary Edition limited to 100 pieces worldwide. The Andy Warhol Limited Edition 100, created in 2015, is limited to only 100 pieces worldwide. It was made by a master craftsman using the finest materials and applying the utmost precision.
