Acclaimed nature photographer Patricia Caulfield, who successfully sued Andy Warhol over his use of her photo of flowers, has died at the age of 91.

Caulfield, who also served as executive editor of Modern Photography magazine in the 1960s, died on July 16 at an assisted living facility in Manhattan, New York.

The photographer’s death was confirmed by her sister and only immediate survivor Kathleen Hall.

Caulfield won a legal battle against Warhol after the pop artist misappropriated her photo of hibiscus blossoms for his renowned Flowers series.

Caulfield’s case bears some similarities to photographer Lynn Goldsmith’s lawsuit against The Andy Warhol Foundation over the artist’s use of her photo of Prince.
