Re­sem­bling truth

#Legend - - LEGENDA -

For a long time, he was lesser known than many of his con­tem­po­raries; to­day, Jasper Johns is recog­nised as one of the most in­flu­en­tial artists of the 20th and 21st cen­turies. This com­pre­hen­sive sur­vey of his work, the first to be held in the UK, is at London's Royal Academy of Arts and fea­tures more than 150 pieces from the artist's 60-year ca­reer, com­pris­ing sculp­tures, draw­ings and prints – with some new works as well. The ex­hi­bi­tion's ti­tle ( Jasper Johns: Some­thing Re­sem­bling Truth) comes from a state­ment he once made about his art: “One hopes for some­thing re­sem­bling truth, some sense of life, even of grace, to flicker, at least, in the work.” See it be­fore De­cem­ber 10.
