Early Work

“…we see that it is not a painting of a flag. The roles are reversed: beginning with the flag, a painting was made…” - David Sylvester, "About Modern Art"

White Flag, 1955

“In the stars it's allegro vivace, agitated movement, flickering and exploding. In the stripes it's andante.” - David Sylvester, "About Modern Art"

“Johns' early work combined a serious concern for the craft of painting with an everyday, almost absurd, subject matter. The meaning of the painting could be found in the painting process itself. It was a new experience for gallery goers to find paintings solely of such things as flags and numbers.”
