More information about this artwork

Jasper Johns combines several artistic interests in this piece – words, and targets. This is a reimagined version of an earlier work, created in 1962, and references the 1932 suicide of poet Hart Crane, whose work inspired Jasper Johns. The hand interrupting the shape of the target calls to the moment shortly after Crane jumped off a boat in the Gulf of Mexico, when his hand reached above the surface of the water before he was swallowed by the sea. The title also takes its inspiration from Crate, whose 1929 poem Cape Hatteras impacted Jasper Johns tremendously.
