Jasper Johns, 'Flag' (1954). On first glance this image is familiar, public and impersonal. On closer inspection the canvas is smeared with wax. Strips of the newspaper are collaged beneath the surface. Three wooden panels are crudely fixed together exposing their thick ridges. Jasper Johns had bridged the gap between rival movements Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art, rendering a commercial image abstract and expressive. Do you know why there are only 48 stars in this painting? 20 Jun 2012
