LA art museum unveils wide-ranging tribute to Jasper Johns

Jasper Johns is the subject of a sprawling new retrospective at Los Angeles' Broad museum that features more than 100 of his works, including nearly a dozen of his most iconic American flag paintings. So it's fitting The Broad's latest exhibition, "Jasper Johns: Something Resembling Truth," begins with a first-floor gallery filled with nearly a dozen of Johns' most celebrated U. S. flag paintings. Although best-known to the general public for his flag paintings and drawings, his other prominent works include numerous interpretations of bull's-eye-like targets, sculptures of everyday things like numbers and flashlights, painted copies of cross-hatched etchings he saw on a passing car, and stunning mixed-media paintings with the cans, brushes and other objects he used in their making attached to them.
