Johns's enigmatic and epigrammatic work irradiated self-belief, and announced, in clarion terms, that the dominance of abstraction was over, kaput, defunct. He had discovered a clever way of reintroducing reality into the realm of fine art.--Alastair Sooke "The Telegraph "
His work speaks to the sense that truth is never certain or static, especially for things like nationhood.... Johns introduces these complicated ideas in a self-assured yet vernacular style unmatched by any of the American avant-gardists working in the latter half of the 20th century.--Matthew Holman "Apollo Magazine "
The formidable catalog for the formidable exhibition...--Peter Plagens "Wall Street Journal "
...the enormous new catalogue raisonee of Jasper Johns, a five-volume monument to the most inscrutable figure in modern American art.--Jason Farago "New York Review of Books "
