About this artwork
This image, as well as a companion print Cups 4 Picasso, is based on Marcel Duchamp’s 1958 collage Self-Portrait in Profile. Johns revisited this idea of mirroring a silhouette to make a second image in several works that he made during the last decade, including Untitled (1992).
