Created in honor of Pablo Picasso after his death in 1973, "Cup 2 Picasso" is an optical illusion by American artist Jasper Johns. It shows the profile of Picasso in black, while the negative space creates a chalice shape. Johns is a famous American abstract expressionist artist, best known for using the motif of flags and numbers in his artworks. This lithograph is signed in the plate and is set in a white mat with a black wood frame.
The profile figure is a portrait of a famous artist who influenced Johns to become a great artist. The artist is none other than Picasso himself. In his article, “Two Master Printmakers in the Shadow of Picasso,” Christopher Lyon argues that Johns became quite a great printmaker in part through his respect for Picasso. When Picasso had passed away in 1973, Johns created the lithograph, Cup 2 Picasso, in commemoration.
