In 1964, Andy Warhol began working on silkscreens of flowers, a subject that would preoccupy him for the rest of his life. That same year Warhol had his first solo exhibition at the prestigious Leo Castelli Gallery in New York. It consisted entirely of “Flowers”. Best known for his vibrant pop imagery and searing commentary on art and popular culture, Warhol’s flower imagery reveals a softer, more intimate side of the artist. In retrospect, it is also a provocative series, appropriating a powerful symbol later identified with flower-power counterculture of the 1960s, the age of peace, love, and anti-war protest. The Flowers are the only subject that Warhol revisited throughout his entire career and in almost every medium. 

 

Andy Warhol was an American artist who was a leading figure in the visual art movement known as Pop Art. His works explore the relationship between expression, celebrity culture and advertisement that flourished by the 1960s. After a successful career as a commercial illustrator, Warhol became a renowned and sometimes controversial artist. The development of Warhol’s career can be seen in the progression from the delicacy of the early illustrations to the boldness of the 1964 “Flowers” series to the tension between the beauty and banality of the silkscreen’s late in his career.
