Jasper Johns, Three Flags, 1958 [source].

The thing about Jasper Johns’s flag images is that they are so conceptually acute that they swing right back around the curve and into the mainstream just as easy as American pie.


I can’t help but think that Johns would be pleased to find his Three Flags behind the counter at a Dennys.
