Critical Review

In the Bottom of my Garden sees Warhol creating a book of his offset lithograph prints, relying much more on watercolour and ink than usual.

In the Bottom of my Garden sees Warhol creating a book of his offset lithograph prints, relying much more on watercolour and ink than usual. His approach and execution combined his blotted-line technique with individually hand coloured watercolour to most of the plates, while others were left in monochromatic black and white. By working with watercolour in selected areas and using a limited palette of just six vibrant basic colours the senses of childhood, simplicity and imagination is emphasised.

Warhol kept the production stages simple in a monographic process and costs low by enlisting the help of friends to help hand colour each sheet with watercolour. Prior to creating the bound books In the Bottom of My Garden and À la recherche du shoe perdu, Warhol had produced offset lithographs but previously not in colour. Therefore, these books are significant markers in his progressive development as an artist of the technicolour age.
