Target with Four Faces by Jasper Johns (1968) screenprint, working proof with chalk, ink and collage. Returning to imagery seen in his 1955 painting of this title, Johns combines the rhythmic geometry of the concentric target bands with four images of the human face, emphasizing variation in repetition—an essential element of Johns' art. The model is choreographer Merce Cunningham (1919–2009), whose dance company used an image of the related edition print for a poster.
