Margaret Anderson is mainly self-taught artist in Edinburgh. Tulips is a lithograph, which are made by drawing with a waxy crayon onto stone, which then can be printed onto paper by covering the stone with various coloured inks. The yellow of the flowers here contrasts starkly with the black and dark brown of the background. The flowers have a life and motion to them as they are seemly held by a hand, allowing the viewer to enter into the composition. The flowers have fallen in various different ways and directions, and are in various states of bloom, inviting contemplation on the mortality of a traditionally beautiful object.
