Painter Lucian Freud is the subject of this small gathering of Jasper Johns's latest works, which includes two paintings, two prints, four ink-on-plastic drawings and several pencil sketches. The view of Freud is derived from a black-and-white photo by British photographer John Deakin, one of a series used by yet another artist, Francis Bacon, to create his own portraits of Freud. As he sometimes has throughout his career, Johns utilizes a mirrored doubling of the image as a compositional effect, while transforming certain details of the photo—including its creases, tears and areas where the picture has been lost—into motifs that are repeated and reworked over successive iterations.
