Jasper Johns / In Press: Companion Essays features interpretive essays by Harvard student contributors to the Jasper Johns / In Press: The Crosshatch Works and the Logic of Print, presented at the Arthur M. Sackler Museum. These essays, compiled in a digital publication available for download, oﬀer original perspectives on Johns’s relationship to print processes.
This publication and the exhibition it accompanies grew out of a collaboration between the Art Museums and Harvard University’s Department of History of Art and Architecture. Four undergraduates enrolled in a class with professor Roberts devoted to the study of Johns’s diptych painting The Dutch Wives (1975), on long-term loan to the Harvard Art Museums from the artist’s collection.
Jacob Cedarbaum, C. Andrew Krantz, Mary Potter, and Phillip Y. Zhang are Harvard College undergraduates, Class of 2012. Jennifer L. Roberts is Professor of History of Art and Architecture, Harvard University.
