Andy Warhol.
Campbell's Soup Cans. 1962
Missed the second part of documentary thanks to a newly installed cable system and season premieres of The Office and C.S.I. In the first part they covered the first exhibition of Warhol's soup cans which were eventually bought by the gallery owner in L.A for $1,000. He paid Andy $100 a month until paid off with a promise that he would never break up the collection of 32. Later sold to the MOMA for over $60 million. Not a bad investment.
