At a crossroads in the middle of his career, pre-eminent American artist Jasper Johns found his way forward in part by looking to the work of Norwegian expressionist painter Edvard Munch. The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts presents a groundbreaking exhibition that examines how Johns mined Munch’s work in the late 1970s and early 1980s as he moved away from abstract painting towards a more open expression of love, sex, loss and death.
