Jasper Johns' Flag 1954-55 is an iconic painting of the Pop Art movement. John's is an American artist grouped as Abstract Expressionist, Neo-Dadaist and Pop Artist. He painted a lot of flags, some of which more abstractly, all with incredibly thick paint and encaustic.
Jasper Johns - Detail of Flag (1954-55). Museum of Modern Art, New York City. This image illustrates Johns' early technique of painting with thick, dripping encaustic over a collage made from found materials such as newspaper. This rough method of construction is rarely visible in photographic reproductions of his work.
Jasper Johns' Map 1961, is one of my favorite paintings by this artist. I love it for it's vibrant color. It's located in the Museum of Modern Art in NY City. I love that you can interpret this image to be a number of things. To me it looks like strings of orange flags dancing in the wind, set on a sun drenched, cloudless, Mediterranean blue sky.
