Jasper Johns (b. 1930; American.) "Cup 2 Picasso" (1973) - Color lithograph measuring 13.5" x 10." With frame and matting, it is 26" x 23." The work of art is signed in the plate in the lower right. The image was published in the periodical, XXe Siècle no. 40, June 1973. "Cup 2 Picasso" is a classic optical illusion piece in which, at first glance, the viewer sees either a goblet or a pair of silhouetted profiles of faces. It is a commemoration of Pablo Picasso following his death in 1973. Jasper Johns created this image of two mirror profiles of Picasso and the space in between forming a chalice cup, symbolically toasting and honoring the great artist. Jasper Johns is an exceptional contemporary 20th century American artist known for his paintings of flags, crosshatchings, targets, and numbers.
