Painted Valentines: The Artful Love Affair between Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg
Event Speaker: Dr. Jonathan Katz
Across some of the most famous paintings in the history of American art, Johns and Rauschenberg conducted a very public love affair that was also, by design, very private. In this talk Katz, a founding figure in queer art history, decodes their pictorial language and reveals their complex relationship.
