Andy Warhol, ‘Flower’, ca. 1970, Deodato Arte

Colored screen print edited by Sunday B. Morning printed with high quality inks. The Flowers are part of the group of works which come from the famous Factory and are the result of a process which mixes photography, screen print and painting made by different hands. Warhol changed the concept of the unique piece by creating repeated art works. Starting from a photo depicting hibiscus flowers, published in the magazine "Modern Photography" in 1964, the artist rads the image back and repeats it several times (more than 900 copies) until it becomes graphic and decorative.

The flowers here exposed are made using different color compositions and can also be interpreted as Warhol's research for how our visual perception is altered by chromatic variations.

Signature: This screenprint is signed on the back with the phrase "this is not by me, Andy Warhol".

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.
