the red and white and starry blue is freedom's shield and hope
these are two of the most valuable paintings in the world. if you wanted to buy one of these you'd have to shell out a few million dollars. the artist is jasper johns.
there's something about the american flag, right? like, you couldn't imagine a serious modern artist wanting to paint the flag of any other country.
my feeling is that johns wanted to paint the flag because the american flag is a symbol of freedom.
