Lot Details

A beautifully hand-colored plate, colors fresh and vibrant. "In the Bottom of My Garden” was named after a song by Rose Fyleman and Liza Lahmann entitled, “There are Fairies in the Bottom of My Garden.” This song was popularized by Beatrice Lillie, the woman who Warhol depicted in one of his gold shoe collages and who also served as one of the leading gay icons of her time. The faerie maiden who slouches into the background of leaves and flowers appears to the viewers as tall as the plant life she is surrounded by, confirming the mirage created by Warhol's fanciful garden. This print is in excellent condition and an exquisite example of Warhol's talent as an artist.

Andy Warhol (August 6, 1928 – February 22, 1987) was a leading figure in the visual art movement known as pop art. After a successful career as a commercial illustrator, Warhol became a renowned and sometimes controversial artist. His works explore the relationship between artistic expression, celebrity culture and advertisement. He worked in a range of media, including painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, film, and music.
