Critical Review

By combining his use of traditional screen printing with the technique of hand-dying and crayon-like lines, Warhol amalgamates the concept of the mass-produced with the originality of a hand-rendered piece. Flowers (F. & S. II.119) shows a line drawing of a vase and flowers against a plain backdrop, with added colour in muted yellow tones.

Warhol continuously returned to the subject of flowers in his career, reinterpreting the traditional art historical genre in a multitude of ways. This particular rendering is reminiscent of 19th century Japanese woodblock prints and accentuates Warhol’s unrivalled skill in the simplification of form. The resulting image is illustrative in style with a clear focus on composition, colour and line, noted for its organic form.
