Figuring Jasper Johns.

JASPER JOHNS LIVES on a sprawling estate in Sharon, Conn. a rural town in the Berkshires with a population of about 2,700 people. The property is stark and hilly, made up of a series of small barnlike structures, one of which houses Johns’s studio. Every detail inside the studio seems intentional, as if each object were a clue about the man himself.

Jasper Johns first painted the American flag in 1954–1955 aged 24, and it’s been a frequently recurring motif in his practice ever since. For Johns, using the flag took care of a great deal for me because I didn’t have to design it. That gave me room to work on other levels"

He approached the flag as an object, rather than a symbol – this painting is no more about a flag than it is about a brushstroke or about a colour or about the physicality of the paint, as he said in 1965

During his life long career, Jasper Johns artist contributed more than 225 unique and challenged artworks that has set the standard for American art in general and for Pop art in particular. Among Johns’ artwork, the Flag (1954-55) is the painting that raised the very first wave in Pop Art world and remained to be one of the most influential artworks of its time. Jasper Johns was born in Augusta, Georgia on May 15, 1930 to William Jasper Johns and Jean Riley. After his parents' divorce, he moved to Allendale, South Carolina to live with his paternal grandparents (Klacsmann, 2009).

Jasper Johns's ongoing stylistic and technical experimentation place him at the forefront of American ar. Influenced by Marcel Duchamp, Johns's early work paired the concerns of craft with familiar concrete imagery.

Jasper Johns's ongoing stylistic and technical experimentation place him at the forefront of American art. His richly textured paintings of maps, flags, numbers, and targets laid the groundwork for Pop art, Minimalism, and Conceptual ar. His interest in process also led to innovations in lithography, screen-printing, etching and woodblock, using such materials as pencil, pen, brush, crayon, wax, and plaster to constantly challenge the technical possibilities of printmaking.

An attempt to come to terms with the challenging contemporary artist, Jasper Johns, that also provides a way of approaching American art of the 1950s and 1960s. Orton (history of art, U. of Leeds) focuses on three key works Untitled (1972), Flag (1954-55), and Painted Bronze (1960). He shows how John's work makes use of the modernist opposition between surface and subject, how it manifests both relatively private and relatively public meanings, and how it develops a self-consciously figurative visual language. Includes 69 color and b&w illustrations. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
