This classic Andy Warhol rendition of Patricia Caulfield’s flowers image that appeared in the 1964 issue of Modern Photograph, reduces the flowers to their most basic form. The colors appear as a pop of brilliant color against a dark background. All details of the flowers have been removed, with only their basic shape remaining. The leaves are only suggested by streaks of green and dots to indicate a grassy meadow.
Warhol used a naturalistic placement of the flowers on the field, reflecting the randomness of nature. The colors of the flowers are bright and joyful, creating a spectacular summer display. The edges of the vintage Pop Art rug are undefined by a border and the leafs extend beyond, making this seem to be as if someone took a photograph and cut out only a portion of the design. The use of space is similar to the framing that a photographer would use to capture such a scene.
This is a beautiful retro rug by an multi dimensional Pop Art artist who became a mid 20th century icon of the pop art movement. This magnificent square size vintage Andy Warhol Flowers rug is the perfect vintage rug for a contemporary design theme and could be used as an area rug or as a wall hanging tapestry rug.
