KIKU 307
Artists have looked to still life studies comprised of flowers as a subject matter for paintings and drawings for centuries. Throughout Andy Warhol’s career, he created numerous paintings and screenprints that are based on flowers. In 1983, he created a series based on the Kiku flower. The Kiku, better known as the Chrysanthemum, is a Japanese flower which signifies Autumn in Japan, the time in which it blooms.

KIKU 307 AS PART OF ANDY WARHOL’S LARGER BODY OF WORK

While the Flowers (Black and White) and Flowers (Hand-colored) series possess a more gestural quality, and feel more like studies. In the early 1980s, Warhol was approached by the Gendai Hanga Center in Tokyo to produce paintings of flowers. Kiku is the Japanese word for chrysanthemum, a flower that traditionally represents the Japanese emperor and Imperial House. This flower inspired the screenprints Warhol created.
