Overview

Painter, sculptor, and printmaker Jasper Johns made art out of the everyday. His absurd images of flags and typically mundane subjects led to his establishment as one of the most well-known of the Expressionists. This program documents the life and work of this avant garde creator. After the debut of his first flag piece, Johns began to experiment with the surrealist and dadaist styles.

Johns' ever-changing signatures became a noteworthy part of the entire post-abstract construct. ~ Sarah Ing
