The newest acquisition to The Courtauld Gallery — The Seasons by Jasper Johns. The work consists of a series of nine prints depicting the seasons of fall, winter, spring and summer. However, these are not just images of the changing landscape—Johns includes his own shadow in each work, showing his presence in the passing of time.
