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.
