This new edition presents a completely revised, expanded and updated version of a modern classic. Jasper Johns’s recent pieces, with their puns, optical illusions and embedded images have attracted considerable critical attention. Crichton, who knows Johns and has collected his work for over 20 years, here offers intimate glimpses of the artist’s potent and seemingly contradictory aspects. Accompanying the text is a whole portfolio of illustrations, providing an overview of his work as painter, sculptor and printmaker. Over 200 works are reproduced, including colour and foldout reproductions.
