Summary, etc.:
The author focuses his attention on how the artist's pioneering paintings relate to life as it is lived and on what they tell us about what it means to be mortal and alive in time. He clears a path through the tangle of narrowly self-reflexive interpretations that have plagued so much critical writing on Johns's work during the past half century, providing a fresh approach and opening our eyes to Johns's accomplishment in revealing ways.--P. 2 of dust jacket.
