A wonderful stop at the San Francisco MOMA on our recent Thanksgiving trip to see the Jasper Johns exhibit that just opened and is running through February.
A nice selection of Johns' work - many of the number series, flags,targets and his "Seasons". Also a fairly recent piece called "Bush Baby" that is being exhibited for the first time.
This 0-9, my personal favourite was not there,
but there was plenty of artwork to see and absorb.
After finishing the Johns' exhibit I went to the 2nd floor permanent collection to visit this Robert Rauschenberg peice Collections. I could stand and gaze at this piece for hours (and I have several times)and still find something new. For all of us who are mixed media artists I feel this piece is seminal to our art form. What we do is all here. It's one of those pieces that must be seen in person to appreciate. The textures, the layers, the colours. Simply brilliant.
