The most important living Post War and Contemporary Artist
Jasper Johns Flags have been making headlines for Six Decades. Since the mid-1950's, Jasper Johns has created approximately 30 paintings, 14 prints, and 50 drawings with the Flag image. In addition to single Flags, Johns has created Flags within larger fields, multiple Flags and backward or vertical Flags.
Of the 14 Jasper Johns Flags Prints, the red-white-blue Flag is the dominant image in 5 prints, including Flags I which achieved record price in May, 2010. Jasper Johns, Untitled (Flag & Vase), 2000, incorporates the Artist's iconic red-white-blue Flag in a Color Linocut from the desirable edition of only 38 impressions with 6 Artist's Proofs.
A selection of Flag Prints by Jasper Johns, including Untitled Flag & Vase, 2000, are in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
