more of his work
MORE OF HIS WORK
  • From the 1950’s into the 1960’s, Johns made paintings, sculptures, drawings and prints that presented commonplace, two-dimensional objects with absolute objectivity and precision
  • Flags, targets, number sequences, letters of the alphabet, and maps were painted in either bright colors of red, blue, yellow, orange and green, or monochrome lead gray.
  • His work often is described as Neo-Dadaist but he is also included in pop art because of the of classical iconography used in his paintings
  • At the end of the 1960’s, Johns painted stenciled words and objects with more fluid brushstrokes and a wider palette.
  • In the ‘crosshatch’ paintings of the 1970’s, Johns used pale colors applied in parallel brushstrokes and in the 1980’s he introduced figural elements in an autobiographical series of paintings and prints.

PAINTINGS
  • The Map resembles the kind of pull-down map found in a 20th-century classroom.
  • This work was painted in 1961, the year President John F. Kennedy took office following the calm 1950s. The civil rights movement was just beginning; the Berlin Wall bad been built; the cold war with Russia was escalating
  • This painting might be suggesting that we take a new look at our changing country
