Poinsettias is a signed screen print made by the renowned Pop artist Andy Warhol in 1982. The print comes in an edition size of 1 and depicts an array of Poinsettias outlined in white against a bright red backdrop.
The print is part of a collection of paintings and screen prints of Poinsettias that Warhol produced in the early 1980s as gifts for his friends. Poinsettias are the unofficial flower of Christmas and Warhol’s choice of this flower, which is closely associated to a festive season centred around consumerism, reflects the artist's love for consumer and popular culture.
Flowers are a recurring motif that run throughout Warhol’s work. Other collections of prints dedicated to flowers include Flowers made in 1964 and Flowers (hand-coloured) from 1974. Making these prints and paintings for his close friends means this collection of artworks is extremely personal and imbued with care and emotion.
