Artists have looked to still life studies comprised of flowers as a subject matter for paintings and drawings for centuries. Throughout Andy Warhol’s career, he created numerous paintings and screenprints that are based on flowers. In 1983, he created a series based on the Kiku flower. The Kiku, better known as the Chrysanthemum, is a Japanese flower which signifies Autumn in Japan, the time in which it blooms.
