Synopsis: Jasper Johns (b. 1930) is one of the most significant figures in the history of postwar art. His work from 1955 to 1965 was pivotal, exercising an enormous impact on the subsequent development of pop, minimalism, and conceptual art in the United States and Europe. This is the first publication to approach Johns?s work of this ten-year period through a thematic framework. It examines the artist's interest in the condition of painting as a medium, a practice, and an instrument of encoded meaning through several interrelated motifs: the target, the “device,? the naming of colors, and the imprint of the body.
In this handsome book, leading scholars, a conservator, and a contemporary artist consider Johns?s activity in this critical decade and discuss many of his iconic paintings, such as Target with Four Faces (1955), Diver (1962), Periscope ( Hart Crane) (1963), and Arrive-Depart (1963). Their new critical and historical perspectives are grounded in an unusually close visual and material analysis of Johns's work.

John Elderfield is Chief Curator of the Department of Painting and Sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art, New York .  Carol Mancusi-Ungaro is Director of Conservation at the Whitney Museum of American Art.

Book Description Jasper Johns regte Mitte der 1950er Jahre mit seinen Flaggen und Zielscheibenbildern nicht nur eine kunsttheoretische Diskussion an, sondern wurde auch mit einem Schlag berühmt. Er gilt heute als Wegbereiter für so bedeutende Kunstströmungen wie Pop Art, Minimalismus und Konzeptkunst. Dieser Ausstellungskatalog über sein wegweisendes Frühwerk verdeutlicht anhand 70 seiner wichtigsten Werke die prozesshafte Weiterentwicklung von Themen wie der Zielscheibe oder der Benennung der Grundfarben. Die hochkarätigen Texte geben dem Leser neben dem visuellen Kunstgenuss einen ausführlichen Überblick über den Künstler, seine Ideen und Werke. (Text engl.) 21 x 35 cm, 276 Seiten, 170 farb. u. 80 s/w-Abb Abb., geb. Bookseller Inventory # 673293
