The inspiration behind the design of the Limited Edition 1928, a limitation number that mirrors the year of Andy Warhols birth, comes from Warhols powerful work Flowers, 1964. Four flower motifs in characteristically vibrant colours are placed in the style of this work in a 2 by 2 formation on the cap. A reference to the on-going commentary on commercialism made by Warhols art, the cone is embellished with a symbol of this discourse: the barcode, while the dollar signadorns the rhodium-plated 750 gold nib. The grey lacquer barrel and platinum-plated fittings create a silver statement as a tribute to The Silver Factory in New York City, Warhols legendary studio where the most influential figures from the art, music and fashion scenes would converge. Engraved on the cap, the artists words capture his philosophy on turning the mundane things of modern life into extraordinary pieces of art: You need to let the little things that would ordinarily bore you suddenly thrill you, while other excerpts of Warhols philosophy are featured in an abridged version of Warhols 1975 book The Philosophy of Andy Warhol (From A to B and Back Again) that accompanies the Limited Edition 1928.Nearly 30 years after his death, Andy Warhols almighty influence still permeates both the art world and popular culture. Warhol showed the world a new way of looking and continues to be one of the art worlds leading figures. Through fine craftsmanship and elegant design, the Montblancs Great Characters Andy Warhol immortalizes the spirit, genius and pioneering spirit of the father of pop art. The concerned pen has never been used nor inked.
