The first comprehensive overview of Jasper Johns's work in an innovative medium that the artist has single-handedly redefined over the course of four decades.

Jasper Johns (b. 1930) is arguably the most important living American artist, and his work is central to any history of postwar art. With extensive new scholarship based on original research and interviews with the artist, Jasper Johns: Catalogue Raisonné of Monotypes provides the definitive account of his groundbreaking work in an intrinsically subversive medium situated between painting, drawing, and printmaking.

Susan Dackerman and Jennifer L. Roberts examine Johns's innovative use of the printing press to create alterity, overturning monotype's long-standing reputation for subjectivity. Featured in this volume are all 143 monotypes Johns made between 1954 and June 2015, most of them published here for the first time. Each work is generously illustrated in color and accompanied by complete cataloguing information, including technical specifications, provenance, exhibition history, and bibliographic references.
