Fifty years ago, during the summer of 1964, Andy Warhol began working on silkscreen paintings of Flowers, a subject that would preoccupy him for the rest of his life. Best known for his vibrant pop imagery and searing commentary on art and popular culture, Warhol’s flower imagery reveals a softer, more intimate side of the artist. Join us as Vivien Fryd, Chair of the Department of Art History at Vanderbilt, looks at Andy Warhol's background and examines his closeted sexuality and how it is both absent and present in his various subjects such as his flowers and comics. Following the lecture, a guided tour of Andy Warhol’s Flowers will be offered.
