A series of cross-hatching marks in green, purple, and orange characterize the present 'Untitled' work by Jasper Johns. There is a sense of motion and rhythm inherent to the piece, behaving like a living record of the artist's process. Lines break mid-way and collide with one another in frenzied fashion, weaving their way throughout the work's surface.

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.
