From 1984 to 1991, pioneering American artist Jasper Johns (b.1930) produced a significant body of work inspired by the theme of the four seasons, including a remarkable series of prints that are exhibited together in this display.

The Seasonsare complex and distinctive works, weaving together themes of artistic creation, the passage of time, and the artist51ݶ own biography, with Johns’ shadow appearing prominently in each composition. Printmaking is one of Johns’ major preoccupations, and this display will reveal his application of an array of techniques to create a collaging of imagery that is both evocative and mysterious.

The Courtauld was fortunate to be given the series of nine prints by Johns in 2016 by Barbara Bertozzi Castelli, the widow of John51ݶ long-term dealer Leo Castelli, and is the only museum in the UK to have the series in its collection.
