JASPER JOHNS "SKETCH...FROM CASTS" LITHO, 1974
One of the most important artists of the 20th century, Jasper Johns (b.1930) is known for singular vision as a painter and printmaker, using both loaded and banal symbols in his creations.
Johns was discovered in the late 1950's by legendary art dealer Leo Castelli, who gave him his first one-man show. During the 1960's his fame and influence rapidly ascended. Although Johns is often associated with Pop Art, he is arguably a better representative or descendant of Dada and Marcel Duchamp. He is also credited with fostering new art trends that shifted from Abstract Expressionism which had dominated American art.
Johns began experimenting with printmaking around 1960 and would create some of his most famous editions, like "Sketch..." with Universal Limited Art Editions, Inc (ULAE).
This dynamic and playful work can be found in numerous important museum collections including the MoMA (NYC) and others.
