Star Spangled

Jasper Johns' Flag via Artnet

You're a grand old flag. That's why Neo-Dadaist Jasper Johns must have painted you, only to further your infamy. 

Johns' Flag is one of my favorite pieces of all time. And, apparently, I'm not the only one who enjoys his work. I'd love to have a piece in my home but I suppose a print would do. Flag sold last year at Christie's for more than $28,000,000. (see here) Yes, a framed poster is okay for now...

Wouldn't a framed Johns print up the cool factor in a boy's room?

A star-spangled bedroom might just inspire the next Commander in Chief! But for now, we'll just appreciate Mr. Johns and his nod to Americana. 

Wishing you a fun and safe Independence Day!
