Early Work

“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.”
