Andy Warhol, ‘Flowers II’, 1970, michael lisi / contemporary art

In 1970, Warhol’s Flower portfolio was reissued as “Sunday B Morning” prints, each recognized as an authentic reproduction in Warhol’s catalogue raisonne. Created in the same manner, on the same paper as Warhol’s initial images, the notable differences are the missing Warhol signature and the much lower price. Created as screenprints on museum board, each print is stamped, “Published by Sunday B. Morning”, verso, and provides an area to “Fill in your signature”, a spoof on Warhol’s concept of commercialism and repetitive imagery. Each measures 35 3/8 x 35 ½ in. (89.9 x90.2 cm) unframed, each from the original edition of 250.

About Andy Warhol

Obsessed with celebrity, consumer culture, and mechanical (re)production, Pop artist Andy Warhol created some of the most iconic images of the 20th century. As famous for his quips as for his art—he variously mused that “art is what you can get away with” and “everyone will be famous for 15 minutes”—Warhol drew widely from popular culture and everyday subject matter, creating works like his 32 Campbell's Soup Cans (1962), Brillo pad box sculptures, and portraits of Marilyn Monroe, using the medium of silk-screen printmaking to achieve his characteristic hard edges and flat areas of color. Known for his cultivation of celebrity, Factory studio (a radical social and creative melting pot), and avant-garde films like Chelsea Girls (1966), Warhol was also a mentor to artists like Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat. His Pop sensibility is now standard practice, taken up by major contemporary artists Richard Prince, Takashi Murakami, and Jeff Koons, among countless others.
