Andy Warhol’s Flowers

Ongoing Event
Fifty years ago, Andy Warhol began working on silkscreen paintings of flowers, the only subject that he revisited throughout his entire career and in almost every medium. Warhol’s flower imagery reveals a softer, more intimate side of an artist best known for his vibrant pop imagery and searing commentary on art and popular culture. This exhibition traces Warhol’s engagement with floral images throughout his life, beginning with early commercial illustrations from the 1950s and the 1964 start of the Flowers series. The exhibition follows the flower theme through the artist’s career with photographs, paintings, and screen prints until 1986, just before his untimely death the following year. Visitors will get a rare chance to experience Warhol’s artificial flower images in parallel with the floral abundance of Cheekwood’s gardens. June 14 – September 7
