About this title

Synopsis:

New in Paperback The work of Jasper Johns occupies a key position in the art of the second half of the 20th century. Jasper Johns: A Retrospective is the most complete and authoritative book on the artist to date, containing 264 color plates illustrating his work in all its facets--paintings, drawings, sculptures, and prints. Accompanying essays review Johns' essential themes; analyze his many methods of referring to predecessor artists; and explore how his art has been viewed by other artists. The plates are arranged in sections according to the stages of Johns' career, allowing comparison of paintings, drawings, sculptures, and prints from each period of his art as it developed and changed. This comprehensive selection of reproductions is interwoven with an illustrated chronology tracing Johns' life and work with unprecedented accuracy and thoroughness. With its scholarly essays, chronology, and extensive bibliography, Jasper Johns: A Retrospective is the indispensable reference work on this crucially important artist. This volume was originally published to accompany the major exhibition of Johns' work held at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 1996-97.

Review:

In any survey of the art of the second half of this century, Jasper Johns is a central figure. This comprehensive book is the most authoritative and complete book to date on this important North American artist. This lavish volume contains 483 illustrations, including 261 in full color and four foldouts. Johns's entire oeuvre is arranged in sections corresponding to each era of his career in all media--paintings, drawings, sculptures, and prints. With its scholarly essays, beautiful color plate reproductions, and extensive bibliography and chronology, this book is sure to become the definitive resource on Jasper Johns.
