"The Drawings of Jasper Johns" accompanies a major exhibition of drawings by this American master at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, the Kunstmuseum Basel, and the Hayward Gallery in London. If features 117 works spanning the artist's entire career over the last thirty-five years.
One-third of the more than 400 drawings that Johns has made have been created since 1980. His drawings are distinctive in part for his use of several techniques in the same work (including freehand drawing, tracing, and imprinting) as well as his superb handling of a variety of media: graphite pencil, graphite wash, charcoal, pastel, chalk, Paintstik, oil crayon, pen and ink, brush and ink, and watercolour.
Johns's drawings are intimately related to his paintings and prints, although they are not usually executed specifically in preparation for these works. The artist has said that he often uses his paintings as models for his art in other media, and his drawings are frequently reworkings of his paintings. Working on paper or sheets of plastic, he stresses certain elements of the paintings and reduces others to correspond to the different materials he is using. In this way, Johns refocuses attention on the subjects of the paintings and provokes new thoughts about the images.
In addition to essays by Nan Rosenthal and Ruth E. Fine, the curators for the exhibition. "The Drawings of Jasper Johns" contains a rare, and illuminating, interview with the artist.
