One of the leading proponents of the Pop Art movement, Jasper Johns culled his source material from popular culture with a preoccupation for the enigmatic character of everyday objects, language and numeric systems. This modest volume reviews the artist's broad career via his works on paper and plastic, surveying 30 objects spanning the years 1955-2001, charting his interests, techniques and aesthetic evolution.
