Jasper Johns

American painter, sculptor, and printmaker

Brief biography, in most instances from the Union List of Artist Names® Online:
American artist who was one of the leaders of the Pop Art movement of the late 1950s and early 1960s. He is best known for his images of targets, flags, maps, and other instantly recognizable subjects. Although he attended the University of South Carolina for over a year and later briefly attended an art school in New York, Johns is largely considered a self-taught artist.
