Jasper Johns' rendering of the American flag, powerful in its tactile immediacy, startled an art world that was still largely preoccupied with abstraction. From the MoMA collection in New York City, this fine reproduction print has been custom-framed with hand-finished molding.
A major figure in the second half of the 20th century, Johns investigated and uprooted the most basic premises of painting, taking culturally central images--a map, a target, the American flag--and imbuing them with new meaning.
