An exhibit of works in the color gray by Jasper Johns is currently on display at the Met in New York City. Johns once claimed gray to be his favorite color, which should be incentive enough to check out this show. The Met’s website includes images from the exhibit, too. Robert Storr, the Dean of the Yale School of Art, said the following about John in a recent New York Times article on Johns:
“Without question he’s one of the most important painters of his generation … He put bits and pieces of painting and conceptual practice together in a way that nobody has done.”
Jasper Johns: Gray is on display until May 4.
