Jasper Johns

Text by Roberta Bernstein, Edith Devaney, Hiroko Ikegami, Morgan Meis, Robert Storr.

Above, from 'Jasper Johns:' "Summer" (1985), encaustic on canvas, 190.5 x 127 cm, from the collection of The Museum of Modern Art, gift of Philip Johnson.

Jasper Johns is regarded as one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, and has remained central to American art since his arrival in New York in the 1950s. With his then partner Robert Rauschenberg, Johns helped to establish a decisive new direction in the art world, termed "Neo-Dada" at the time. Johns' striking use of popular iconography, "things the mind already knows," as he put it (flags, numbers, maps), made the familiar unfamiliar—and made a colossal impact in the art world, becoming a touchstone for Pop, minimalist and conceptual art.
This handsomely illustrated book, now available in paperback, brings together Johns' paintings, sculptures, prints and drawings. From his innovations in sculpture to his use of collage in paintings, it gives focus to different chapters of Johns' career and examines the international significance of his work. Featuring contributions from a range of experts, this volume explores the depth and breadth of Johns' oeuvre, encompassing more than half a century.
Jasper Johns (born 1930) made his major breakthrough as a painter in the mid-1950s when he started using iconic, popular images in his paintings—an explosive move at a moment when advanced painting was understood to be exclusively abstract. Johns' midcentury paintings' lush, painterly surfaces resemble those of abstract expressionism, but Johns arrived at them through slow, labor-intensive processes and mediums such as encaustic. Throughout his 60-year career Johns has worked with many different mediums and techniques, using the restlessness of his own process to explore the interplay of materials, meaning and representation in art.

Something Resembling Truth

Something Resembling Truth

Today, at last, the AP has projected that Joe Biden will be the next President of the United States. And Kamala Harris, the next Vice President. Even as we rejoice, we know that their jobs will be monumental beyond conception—not only in terms of ending the pandemic and repairing the economy, but in the all-important imperative to bring the country together after four years of excruciating political and social estrangement. We want this. We want to respect and trust our fellow Americans, our leaders, and all branches of government—even as we retain our right to question and to protest peacefully. On this decisive and highly-charged day, it is a pleasure to feature Jasper Johns's "Flag on an Orange Field II"—a painting that looks as fresh today as it did when it was completed in 1958. "One hopes for something resembling truth," Johns said in 2006, "some sense of life, even of grace, to flicker, at least, in the work." continue to blog
