Based on a photograph of hibiscus flowers by Patricia Caulfield in Modern Photography, June 1964.

The orientation of the prints illustrated in the Catalogue Raisonné is based on that in Caulfield’s photograph.  The location of the signature and date, and hence the orientation, may vary in other examples.
