How Andy Warhol's Flowers Became a Pop Art Icon

New York | 24 Oct 2019

In this Sotheby's Story, discover the enduring appeal of Andy Warhol's iconic Flowers prints. While the Flowers today seem emblematic of Warhol iconography, they were at the time of inception a notable departure from images of commercialism (Campbell’s Soup) or celebrity (Marilyn Monroe) for which the artist was becoming known. Fifty years after the publication of the portfolio, the Flowers hold a unique position in the canon of Warhol’s early prints. This complete set of ten screenprints from 1970 will be offered in Sotheby's Important Prints and Multiples Evening Sale. (24 October | New York)
