Description
 
Medium: original offset lithograph and mixed media collage and multiple. Catalogue reference: Gemini 276. Executed in 1971; this impression was published by Gemini G.E.L. the same year. Size: 10 3/8 x 8 3/8 inches (262 x 213 mm). This multiple consists of a real paintbrush and three actual watercolor paint cakes mounted onto a two-color offset lithograph. Jasper Johns invites you to collaborate with him and complete the work, creating your own version of his Target. Signed in the image (not by hand).

Condition: in better condition usual for this piece, with the paintbrush still intact. Originally mounted inside a hinged white plastic clamshell case, the collage has become detached from the case (both the case and the Gemini "Technics and Creativity" catalog that was presented with this art work are included in the sale). A vintage Pop Art classic, and one of the few examples of Jasper Johns "Target 1970" that still survive.
