Jasper Johns was
HUGE in the late 70s, Time covers, shows at the Museum
of Modern Art. But for us starving art students, we were
wondering what the hell all the fuss was about.
back I have to admit, there are very few artists on the current
scene now in 2005 that have much recognition outside the
narrow circle of the art intelligentsia. Johns, with a few
others, like Harring and Warhol was
able to touch the general public with his work.
