American - 1930

Jasper Johns, born on May 15, 1930, in Augusta, Georgia, is a pioneering American artist renowned for his significant contributions to Pop Art and Neo-Dadaism. He is celebrated for helping to re-imagine the role of the artist and in doing so left an indelible mark on art history, far beyond the 20th-century.

In the mid-1950s, Johns gained prominence for his groundbreaking series that featured everyday images like flags, targets, and maps. Notably, "Flag" (1954-1955) questioned traditional art symbolism. His experimentation with encaustic and collage pushed artistic boundaries.

Associated with both Pop Art and Neo-Dadaism, Johns' work blurred the lines between representation and abstraction, inviting viewers to question visual language. His pieces are prominently featured in major museum collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, Art Institute of Chicago, Tate Modern, London, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and many, many others.
