False Start - Jasper Johns

Price in US $ - 80 million

Jasper Johns
is an American contemporary artist who works primarily in painting and printmaking. The False Start is one of his popular oil paintings made on a canvas 170.8 centimeters long and 137.2 centimeters wide - best described as second generation abstract expressionist.

His fixation on technical procedures defines the work of art as almost a kind of utilitarian object—as if the function of a painting were, first and foremost, to describe itself.
