"Focus: Jasper Johns" is organized by theme; included in this Exhibition are Museum Selections from the Artist's important series of Flags, Numbers, Savarins, Maps, Targets, The Seasons, as well as Works of Art from the Johns' recent Catenary Series. Jasper Johns has been exploring many of these important themes since the mid-fifties, and continues to explore and challenge the boundaries of Art everyday, without hype.

Levene Fine Art, Ltd., has impressions of several of the important Jasper Johns Prints included in the Museum of Modern Art's Collection showcased in "Focus: Jasper Johns", including several examples published by Universal Limited Art Editions. Flags (ULAE 42), 1968, is a stunning Color Lithograph the Artist created on Handmade Paper during the Op Art period and The Seasons (ULAE 238-241), 1987, a Suite of 4 Color Intaglios Johns created as mini retrospective.
