SAS Passenger Ticket 20
This piece is a great visual representation of an SAS Passenger ticket, done in bright yellow, with black graphics covering it. The piece was based on Warhol’s round-trip SAS airline ticket and baggage check to Stockholm dated December 7, 1967. SAS Passenger Ticket is an enlarged ticket for Scandinavian Airlines, and was published for a Warhol exhibition in Stockholm, Sweden.
SAS Passenger Ticket 20 AS PART OF ANDY WARHOL’S LARGER BODY OF WORK:
SAS Passenger Ticket is like a lot of Warhol’s other works where he was elevating everyday, mundane objects to images of high art. The exhibition that this particular piece was created for later traveled to Amsterdam, Switzerland and Norway, therefore, this particular piece was seen by many in Scandinavia, which was unlikely for Warhol’s works at the time.
