JASPER JOHNS (b. 1930 Georgia, lives in Sharon), best known for his "Flag" series
Yale University Art Gallery,
"Johns is a major figure in the post Abstract Expressionist generation which introduced the Pop Art Movement and later influenced Minimalism. He has given us such iconic series as his flags, targets and numbers paintings . He worked closely with Robert Rauschenberg and other titans of late 20th century modernism."
