Read more: Jasper Johns' groundbreaking work shocked the art world when it was first shown in the late 1950s. Since then, he has continued to challenge new audiences and himself through more than sixty-five years of his career. He was born in 1930 in Augusta, Georgia; Jones spent most of his adult life in New York; today Jasper lives in Sharon, Connecticut, where he continues to work in his studio at the age of ninety-one.

Jones' use of common objects and motifs, inventive materials and formats turned the conventional wisdom about what a work of art is and can be. His deep generative practice helped spawn new movements, including pop art, minimalism, and conceptualism, that continue to inspire successive generations of artists to this day.
