Davison Art Center Acquires Prints from American Artist Jasper Johns

In December 2018, Jasper Johns donated 23 prints to the Davison Art Center at Wesleyan University in honor of art historian Richard “Dick” Field, who served as DAC's curator from 1972 to 1979. Field, who curated exhibitions of Johns' work at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and Davison Art Center, published three books about the artist: Jasper Johns: 1960–1970 (Philadelphia Museum of Art, 1970); Jasper Johns Prints: 1970–77 (Wesleyan, 1978); and The Prints of Jasper Johns, 1960–1993: A Catalogue Raisonné (Universal Limited Art Editions, 1994).

Johns' gift joins the Davison Art Center’s collection of more than 25,000 works of art. Please visit the 'External Link' below for the full article, published by Olivia Drake in the university's "News @ Wesleyan" blog.
