ART

Tools of The Trade

It looks like a bunch of paintbrushes stuffed in a coffee can. But this is actually a sculpture–Jasper Johns’ Painted Bronze. After 50 years in the painter’s personal collection, the piece will move to New York City’s Museum of Modern Art, where it will be on display intermittently. Critics consider the sculpture a milestone in postwar art: the lettering on the can is hand-painted, the streaks down the rim meticulously faded–even the metallic rim is, in fact, gray paint.
