Discover Jasper Johns as a passionate collector of drawings!

From Paul Cézanne to Pablo Picasso to Willem de Kooning – the collection of Jasper Johns offers surprising juxtapositions. The drawings’ consistently high quality is the result of his keen eye as a connoisseur, and many of the works are a testament to his friendships with other artists. In this catalogue, works by nearly fifty artists enter into an inspiring exchange that will fascinate experts and art lovers alike.

Jasper Johns (b. 1930) ranks among the major American artists of the twentieth century. His accomplishments as a collector, however, have been little known until now. This beautifully produced volume features a selection of more than one hundred drawings, inviting you to dive into the richness and depth of a truly unique collection.
