JOHNS, Jasper. Cl. New York, 2005 This book chronicles Jasper Johns body of work titled, Catenary, in which he investigates the nature of his painting by reducing it to three basic elements: the wooden slats that frame them; the predominately monochrome ground that acts as a receptacle for a limited number of symbols, if any at all; and the lilting string "catenary", the curve naturally assumed by a cord hanging freely from two points.
