Comprising classic Jasper Johns' imagery, 0-9 numbers, a United States map and the alphabet expressed using American sign language, the print is a stunning single-color offset lithograph published on a vellum type paper. Johns asked Master Printer Bill Goldston, at Universal Limited Art Editions (ULAE), in Bay Shore, Long Island, where the artist has made prints for five decades, to help him create a photoshop file merging two black ink-wash drawings. The “original” exists only as a computer file, a first for Johns.

Jasper Johns (American, b. 1930) is a contemporary artist known for his painting, sculpture, and printmaking. In 1954, Johns met Robert Rauschenberg and they became partners. They were strongly influenced by couple Merce Cunningham and John Cage. In 1958, Leo Castelli discovered Johns while visiting Rauschenberg’s studio and gave him his first solo show. At this show, Johns met Alfred Barr, the founding director of New York’s Museum of Modern Art, who purchased four works from the exhibition. In 1963, Johns and Cage founded the Foundation for Contemporary arts in New York City. Johns is best known for his “Flag” painting (1954-55), which he painted after having a dream about the American flag.
