Making his breakthrough as a painter in the mid 1950s, Jasper Johns eschewed the predominant avant-garde art movement of abstraction to explore popular iconography. With his then-partner Robert Rauschenberg, Johns helped to establish a new direction in the art world (termed "Neo-Dada" at the time) with imagery of flags, numbers, maps, and targets; "things the mind already knows," in the artist's words.
