Flowers (Hand-Colored) 113 by Andy Warhol is part of a portfolio that consists of ten screenprints that were based on images found in a wallpaper catalogue called Interpretive Flower Designs. The Flowers (Hand-Colored) series follows Flowers (Black and White), which focuses on Warhol’s fascination with line drawings that place an emphasis on line and composition. The Flowers (Hand-Colored) series contains images that are the same as the previous black and white series, but they are filled with color. Warhol’s application of Dr. Martin’s aniline watercolor dyes instills an element of design with the free flow of colors, which create a vibrant still life.

Flowers (Black and White) 113 by Andy Warhol as Part of His Larger Body of Work

Warhol continuously revisited the use of flowers as a subject matter throughout his entire career in almost every medium. Compared with Warhol’s Flowers series from 1970, the hand-painted and hand-drawn quality of Flowers (Hand-Colored) 113 is decidedly a more personal, delicate approach that shows Warhol’s ability to not shy away from different methods. Both the Flowers (Hand-Colored) and Flowers (Black and White) series are a testament to Warhol’s ability as an artist. Rather than showcasing Warhol’s typical pop art style, the portfolios prove Warhol’s skill across genres.
