Warhol Soup Cans at LACMA

One of Warhol's Soup Can prints/paintings displayed from the permanent collection at LACMA. Seems that this was a gift to the museum in 2005. The painting is from 1964.

This is not one from the original installation of 32, as the scale is far larger than those in the 4 x 8 grid of works you see so often online.

What I like about it is the registration mark that had never been covered when it was printed, or perhaps this canvas was used as a setup, or proof for the rest of the print run. Looks like the fact was a little off that day and the registration is a bit out of alignment.
