Description - Jasper Johns by Roberta Bernstein

Jasper Johns (b.1930) is regarded as one of the most influential American artists of the last sixty years. When he broke onto the New York art scene in the 1950s, Johns and his lover Robert Rauschenberg established a decisive new direction in an art world that had been dominated by the Abstract Expressionists. Johns's striking use of popular iconography, such as flags, numbers and maps, rendered with a distinctive textural, painterly surface, made a colossal impact. In this handsomely illustrated study, skilled writers examine Johns's pioneering oeuvre and offer a detailed overview of the career and international significance of this subtlest of craftsmen. SELLING POINTS: A study of one of America's greatest contemporary artists illustrated with his paintings, sculptures, drawings and collages, and with texts written by leading academic experts, published to accompany his retrospective exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts, London Includes Johns's most iconic works, sculptures, works on paper and collages 200 colour images
