With the first day of Spring finally here, it is the perfect time to take a closer look at some of the most famous flowers in the history of art. Throughout his career Andy Warhol often return to subjects that interested him. Flowers first appeared in his early work as a commercial illustrator in the 1950’s as delicate whimsical illustrations. In the 1960’s-70’s he created his most famous flower series featuring 4 flowers repeated in assorted color treatments, exhibited in various orientations. This series had rich color saturation with the silkscreen process flattening the shapes creating works that were integrally abstract. Later in the 1980’s Warhol once again returned to the subject of flowers when he created a series of screenprints of large Daisy images in several colors. See Andy Warhol’s Flowers.
