When Jasper Johns’s flagship paintings debuted in 1958, they immediately brought him recognition and made him the critical link between abstract expressionism and pop art. Over the next 60 years, Jones continued to amaze viewers with the beauty and complexity of his paintings, drawings, sculptures and prints. Today he is considered one of America’s most influential artists.
«The art of change"- This is a rare opportunity to get acquainted with the six decades of Johns work in the field of print art. The exhibition, organized in four thematic, approximately chronological sections, follows Jones, who over time revises and repeats key motives. Viewers will see examples of his familiar flags and targets, as well as images that explore the tools, materials and methods of marking the artist; abstract works based on motifs known as stone slabs and line signs; and later works teeming with autobiographical and personal images.
