Andy Warhol: The Flower Series
The Flower series is one of Andy Warhol’s most successful projects.
A departure from his usual representation of brands, the series is based on a photograph of hibiscus blossoms that he found in a magazine titled Modern Photography. According to art critic David Bourdon, Warhol’s vibrant manipulation of colors produces a floating effect in his flowers, “like cut-out gouaches by Matisse set adrift on Monet’s lily pond.”
It is also said that the series gave rise to the expression “flower power”, against the backdrop of the massive non-violence movement during the 1960’s. Now is your chance to claim a piece of pop art history.
