Flowers 71 is a screenprint from one of Andy Warhol’s most popular series. It is well known and a favorite among Andy Warhol collectors. Many of Andy Warhol’s sources of content comes from appropriated material. Warhol would often find his imagery for his screen prints in advertisements and magazines. Based on a photograph by the nature photographer Patricia Caulfield, Warhol made prints of hibiscus flowers with petals in contrasting colors. The vibrant and bright color combinations in these works are characteristically Warhol. The artist’s choice in cropping the image into a square format gives a unique opportunity for the piece to be viewed in varying ways.
