About the Work
Between 1964 and 1965, Warhol created his Flower paintings. These were initially inspired by a photograph of several hibiscus flowers taken by Patricia Caulfield, then the executive editor of Modern Photography magazine. The magazine’s foldout article depicted how a new Kodak home color processing system could manipulate color. Warhol appropriated the image, cropped, copied, enhanced the contrast, and eventually settled on a square format that meant the paintings could be viewed from any orientation. A collection of these paintings was the focus of Warhol's first show at the prestigious Leo Castelli Gallery in late 1964, and signaled his ascension into the art world.
These paintings were so popular that the print series was a natural next step. One of his earliest full suites, they followed right after the Soup Cans, Flash and Marilyn and remain as highly desirable and iconic images to this day.

About the Artist
Andy Warhol is seen as one of the most prolific American artists of all time, whose undeniable influence proved him to be a leading figure within the Pop Art and Culture Movement. Warhol was a multitalented individual; he was an artist, filmmaker, producer, designer, and photographer. Warhol was born on August 06, 1926 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. From an early age, Warhol was interested in the arts as he was often sick at home than at school. Rather isolated due to childhood illnesses, a young Warhol entertained himself by drawing and with other artistic hobbies. Eventually, Warhol graduated high school with aspirations to become an illustrator in the world of advertising. He received his Bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design from the Carnegie Mellon University of Technology and moved to New York to pursue his creative dream.
