Item description for Jasper Johns: The Business of the Eye (Taschen Basic Art Series) by Barbara Hess...

Though his work is often categorized as Pop Art for its use of popular iconography and household objects, Jasper Johns can also be described as a Neo-Dadaist. Using wax-based paint, plaster relief, collage, and even commonplace objects such as brooms and rulers in his paintings, Johns achieves a sculptural texture in his work. He is arguably most known for his flag paintings of the 1950s (the Museum of Modern Art in New York recently paid over $20 million for White Flag), though other themes, including targets, numbers, letters, and maps, are also famously recurrent. Johns is widely considered one of the most important American artists of the 20th century.

Reviews - What do customers think about Jasper Johns: The Business of the Eye (Taschen Basic Art Series)?

Good overview, good value  Mar 29, 2008
Like the other Taschen Basic Art series books I've seen, this provides a good introduction to Johns's work, covering his career through the present day. At only 96 pages, including a large number of color reproductions of his works, it is a quick read, but it also is far from comprehensive, of course.

For the price and quality, it offers a very good value to the layman seeking to learn more about the artist's work.
