I have looked up some additional info about the various Brillo boxes that we talked about, and I thought it would be good to lay them all out here.
- Brillo box, the original commercial soap box design, was designed by Abstract Expressionist painter Steve Harvey.
- Brillo Box, the sculpture by Andy Warhol (1964)
- Brillo Box as part of an exhibition entitled, Not Andy Warhol, and sometimes called Not Brillo Box, a sculpture by appropriationist artist Mike Bidlo
So we can refer to these as Harvey’s Brillo box, Warhol’s Brillo Box, and Bidlo’s Not Brillo Box if we want.
Incidentally, I tried very hard to find any information about the painter Steven Harvey. He does not appear to have a Wikipedia page; there is a studio bearing that name in NYC (I don’t know whether it is connected), and there are a bunch of paintings that don’t at all look like what I would expect from an abstract expressionist. So if anyone finds a resource on this guy, let me know and I will link it.
