Lot description
Johns plays with art and mapping, creating a work of his own, upside down. This print is in great condition and on very thick paper with a few hinges remaining on verso from previous framing.

Jasper Johns, born in 1930, is an American painter and printmaker. His work is often described as Neo-Dadaist, though he is often considered within the Pop Art and Abstract Expressionist movements. Johns studied at the University of South Carolina and briefly at the Parsons School of Design in New York City. In New York, Johns met long time friends Robert Rauschenberg, Merce Cunningham and John Cage, with whom he explored the contemporary art scene. Johns’ subject matter often includes images and objects from popular culture including the classical iconography of everyday symbols, such as: flags, maps, targets, letters and numbers. His style is lush and painterly, and he is famous for incorporating such media into his surfaces as encaustic and wax-based paint and plaster relief. His work plays with presented opposites, contradictions, paradoxes, and ironies much like Marcel Duchamp. Johns also produces intaglio prints, sculptures and lithographs with similar subject themes. In 2007, the National Gallery in Washington D.C. held a retrospective of his work entitled “Jasper Johns: An Allegory of Painting 1955-65.” Other major museums including the Museum of Modern Art in New York have held solo exhibitions of his work in recent years.
