Author and Project Director at the Wildenstein Institute Roberta Bernstein observes: "the crosshatchings are the first Jasper Johns paintings that can be properly called abstract, though they are more like drawings than the gestural abstractions of Jackson Pollock or Jack Tworkov, and they bristle with citations from Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, the Surrealists, and other early-twentieth-century figures."
