Discover more than 150 works from one of the most influential artists of the 20th and 21st centuries at the landmark Jasper Johns: Something Resembling Truth exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts.

The exhibition takes its title from a statement Johns made in 2006: “One hopes for something resembling truth, some sense of life, even of grace, to flicker, at least in the work.”

Take the rare opportunity to search for the truth in the American artist’s work yourself as the retrospective brings together pieces that seldom travel from international private and public collections, including iconic images of flags, targets, numbers, maps and light bulbs.
