It is with great pride that we present our 2nd collection with one of the world's greatest artists, Andy Warhol. In honor of this second collection, the Andy Warhol Foundation has provided us with the stories behind some of Warhol's most iconic pieces that have been translated into this collection. This installment dives deeper into some of his most famous work - his usage of flower prints. Here is the full story of Warhol's flowers -
"Throughout Andy Warhol’s career he often returned to subjects that interested him. In the 1950’s while working as a commercial illustrator he created several delicate works of flowers. In the 1960’s he created his most famous flowers series these all over colorful compositions were exhibited in various orientations and the silkscreen process flattened the subjects to create a beautiful painting that is integrally abstract. In the 1980’s he created a proposal for the exterior of the Tacoma Dome of flowers and after liking this images so much he created a series of screen-prints of Daisies.
In the early sixties, Warhol created many works depicting consumer products, Hollywood starlets and a highly publicized series depicting death and disaster in American society, and so with the Flowers series, Warhol turned to the most decorative and abstract subject from this period. These all over colorful compositions were exhibited in various orientations and the silkscreen process flattened the subjects to create a beautiful painting that is integrally abstract."
