Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol is best known for his paintings of Campbell’s soup and celebrities like Marilyn Monroe. But before he painted those icons of pop art, Warhol worked as an illustrator for the I. Miller Shoe Company. There, he gained success in painting playful, detailed, and beautiful images of, what else, shoes.

Warhol prolifically painted blue heels with buckles, pink shoes with bows, boots, etc. In fact, he even tried to exhibit the shoe art but was turned down. Imagine that.

You know Warhol would make a Drop-Dead Gorgeous Shoe Collection..
