Art for the Digital Age

Andy Warhol, Flowers (1964) Picture Credit: Peggy Guggenheim Collection

The Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice has only one Andy Warhol. It is just over half a metre square, a simplistic screen print of white flowers on a black and green background. It is no Marilyn Monroe, no gently smiling Mao, no obsessive repetition of Campbell’s tomato soup. Yet I am convinced it is one of the most documented artworks in the museum.
